MEANING OF THE OKINAWA SEISHINRYOKU KARATE DO
It is difficult to translate exactly into english the meaning of seishinryoku,but by looking at the make up of the component worlds we can get an understanding of its meaning.
SEISHIN ( Soul,Spirit,Mind.) - RYOKU ( power ) - KARA ( Empty ) - TE ( Hand ) - Do ( The way )
Of therefore we can aive at the following translation
''THE POWER OF THE SPIRIT AND WAY OF THE EMPTY HAND''
The TRADITIONAL PART contains chosen elements ( KATA ) from Chotoku Kyan, which have been Modified according to the seishinryoku philosophy and are taught in the old Okinawa way.
The Competitive part is divided in two categories. KUMITE POINT & KNOCKDOWN KUMITE. Both kumite types include hand strokes (punches – nudges), leg strokes ( kicks-knee hits-low kicks ) And standing battle – ground battle, without missing the karate technique.
