From Seisan to Pinan?
I've been ruminating over this sequence in Pinan Daikou (outward block, kick, punch, outward block) for a couple of weeks now. I've copied the whole thing from Pinan Shodan to my amalgamated Pinan Daikou. But where did it come from before Pinan Shodan?
Kick-punch seems a pretty standard combination in Karate, but actually its practiced here quite differently to how we see it in the classical (pre-Pinan) kata. Here we kick with the rear foot, put it down in front, then follow with gyakuzuki (reverse punch). That's different to the classical kata. In those we often see kick-punch with the kicking foot placed back down at the rear, so the gyakuzuki is done on the same side as the kick (eg. Seisan or Gojushiho/Useishi). Or the stance is neutral before and after the kick (which itself is nami-gaeshi - returning wave kick, as in Passai). Nowhere does it appear quite as in Pinan Shodan.
Perhaps there's a clue in the following technique, the outward block with the rear hand. In the first line of Seisan we have 'block, step, punch, block' rather than 'block, kick, punch, block', but otherwise it's the same thing. Generally speaking, practitioners of Matsumura Shorin Ryu consider a step in kata to be interchangeable with a kick, ie. 'every step can be a kick'. From this perspective the two sequences are just the same. So, for my money, I think this is where the sequence originated. …….. #karate#seisan#karatejutsu#karatedo#okinawankarate#selfdefence#selfdefense#shorinryu#leeds#headingley#headingleykarate#martialarts#gkrkarate#kirkstall#heian#shotokankarate#loveleeds#leedslife#discoverleeds#iloveleeds#karatepunch#leedsuni#taekwondo#pinanshodan#shitoryu#dojo#dojang#leedsmet#wadoryu#meanwood

As simple as it seems, there is a lot of value in the basic drills. Here me and my cousin Sensei Derek Fletcher are just doing a very simple jab and parry drill. 2 minutes of this and your arms and shoulders are going to feel fantastic.
