Taikyoku Sandan - "Third Cause"


Taikyoku Sandan introduces new techniques including:

Embusen

There are two kiai points in Taikyoku Sandan:

  1. On the last jodan oi tsuki  (upper level lunge punch) of the embusen.
  2. On the last jodan oi tsuki  (upper level lunge punch) of the embusen.

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.
