Sochin - "Immovable Stance"

Sochin introduces new techniques such as a jodan yoko nukite (upper side spear hand).


There are two kiai points in Sochin:

  1. On the first jodan shita tsuki (upper level rising punch) on the right side three quarters of the way through the kata.
  2. On the last movement of the kata which is a chudan kizama tsuki (middle level thrust punch).

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.

Sorry, the demonstration video is not available.
