Ji'in - "Temple Ground"

Ji'in introduces new techniques including:


There are two kiai points in Ji'in:

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.

"Knowing when to keep kata basic, and knowing when to add bunkai, is a sign of experience in action".
