The ancient Sanchin Kata, or 'Three Battles Sequence', can be traced back to the roots of karate. Some consider it the missing link between Chinese kung fu and Okinawan karate.
Traditional Training Methods for Karate Power. Sanchin Kata is known to develop extraordinary quickness and generate remarkable power. This program breaks down the form piece by piece, body part by body part, so that the hidden details of the kata are revealed.

Regular practice of Sanchin Kata conditions the body, trains correct alignment, and teaches the essential structure needed for generating power within all of your karate movements. Many karate practitioners believe that Sanchin Kata holds the key to mastering the traditional martial arts. Though it can be one of the simplest forms to learn, it is one of the most difficult to perfect.

Goju-Ryu 5th-dan Kris Wilder offers in-depth exploration of Sanchin Kata, with detailed instruction of the essential posture, linking the spine, generating power, and demonstration of the complete Sanchin Kata.

Simply put, your Karate will never be the same.

Kris Wilder began his martial arts training in 1976 in the art of Tae Kwon Do, he has earned black belt-level ranks in three arts: Tae Kwon Do (2nd Degree), Kodokan Judo (1st Degree) and Goju-Ryu Karate (5th Degree), which he teaches at the West Seattle Karate Academy. He has trained under Kenji Yamada, who as a Judoka won back-to-back United States grand championships ('54-'55); Shihan John Roseberry, founder of Shorei-Shobukan Karate and a direct student of Seikichi Toguchi; and Hiroo Ito, a student of Shihan Kori Hisataka (Kudaka in the Okinawan dialect), the founder of Shorinji-Ryu Kenkokan Karate.

Though now retired from Judo competition, while active in the sport Kris competed on the national and international level. He has traveled to Japan and Okinawa to train in karate and has authored several books on the martial arts, including co-authoring "The Way of Kata."
