Chinte - "Extraordinary Hands"

Chinte introduces several new techniques including:


There are two kiai points in this kata:

  1. On the jodan empi uchi (upper level elbow strike).
  2. On the last chudan tate tsuki (middle level vertical punch) just before the three small jumping steps.

Tempo (speed)

The tempo of the kata demonstrated below has not been changed for filming. Everyone has their own tempo, however, it should remain similar for all forms/variations.

Demonstration of Kata

Demonstration of Kata Variations

Apart from the common "Omote" (front facing), way of performing kata (as shown above), kata can also be performed, "Ura" (opposite), "Go" (defensive) and "Go no Ura" (defensive opposite). Students will be required to be perform kata variations in advanced gradings.

Sensei Kase introduced these variations explaining that performing kata ura, go, or go no ura is closer to actual application in real fighting circumstances.

"A good effort is the result of having the proper mental attitude".
