                                                                                 (OPEN DIVISION)   



Okinawa seishinryoku karate do comes from the island of Okinawa, and we follow teaching from chotoku kyan.                                


The TRADITIONAL PART contains chosen elements ( KATA ) from the two Okinawa schools, 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 –AND- 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.


The kata is a system of fighting motions which includes allmai technical action and movements existing within the style. The person performing kata leads a meditative combat against several adversaries,attacking at the same time,of different sizes and having different styles and techniques with regard to the use of blows and weapons. Kata reconstitutes the condition of a real fight,and has a irect effect on one's subconscious. As a result it produces an automatism of movements and reflexes. If the practice of kata is approached with this principle in mind then it imperceptibly unclenches within the disciple the ability to act and react in any fight,whether it be in training or in reality,automatically.

The following is a list of kata by Chotoku Kyan Sensei and where they originate from: Ananku ( taught to Kyan by Master in Taiwan ) - Seisan ( Sokon Matsumura) - Naifanchi (Sokon Matsumura) - Wanshu (Pechin Maeda) - Passai (Kokan Matsumura)- Kusanku (Pechin Yara). Each kata is unique and has its own importance and values,that yield numerous benefits to the karateka practise them with true spirit.
