|Study on SHOTKAN -Ryu Karate's KATA Last update Feburuary 2, 2016 HOME|
|I talk about the name of Syotokan KATA .
The names of present Syotokan-KATA hade created by Gichin Funakoshi(1868～1957).
Needless to say, he is the great Okinawan master who brought Karate from Okinawa to Japan. However , now these two actions are sometimes pointed out as his mistake.
First of all, He abolished the Okinawan KATA's name and changed there into the Japanese style name .For instance, "KU-SAN-KU" had changedinto "KAN-KU".In addition, to be suitable for a Japanese idea,he had changed the operations of KATA. At the time,The operations of Okinawan
Kata were very strange operations for many Japanese people.
I try to research the former meaning of Syotokan Kata.
※Refer to "our histry and activity" for "Wang Shijiang".
Wai Shinzan, WANG Shijian, and WANG Daxing are the same persons. It is
very interesting that Gojuryu and shotokanryu have "Common ancestry".
KATA"WANKAN" of Shitoryu is the same etymology.
☆It is thought that Ryuei-ryu Karatedo's three Katas( Anan, Heiku, and
Paiku ) originates in Chan Nan. The three Kata have the peculiar movemen
of beginning. The movement that indicates Heaven and Earth at the same
time has a religious meaning. From the operation,it is guessed that Chan-Nan
was parties concerned of "Taiping Rebellion" (1850) of the Christian
who gets up in China.
They are our distinctions of the 20th century now though we are persisting
in the style of "××Ryu". Kata of Karate has very various roots.
"××Ryu" is only a system of Kata that famous Sensei collected
by chance. However, a certain great Sensei constructed the system choosing
Kata by a clear plan and the principle, and adding his research. Chojun
Miyagi and Gichin Funakoshi are the typical great men.
