In 2022 I would like to dedicate the Shudokan Masterclass to two great kata:
- Shinpatan (心波短)
- Shinpacho (心波長)
The Shinpatan is today practiced in Shito-ryu, Shindo Jinen Ryu Karate-Jutsu and in some schools founded by students of Toyama Sensei (Doshinkan, Keishinkan, Yoshinkan and Tsuchiya-ryu).
In Doshinkan Karatedo of Ichikawa Isao Hanshi, however, the sister kata Shinpacho has been preserved. According to oral tradition, the kata Shinpacho was Toyama Sensei's second favorite kata after the Koryu Gojushiho. Exciting, isn't it?
I have planned the 2022 Shudokan Masterclass as follows:
Since it is a masterclass, we will work on some of the applications together. There will also be home exercises :-) But don't worry, I will also contribute some videos with great applications.
My goal is to pass on the inner techniques of these two kata and also to encourage and motivate you to find your "secrets" in the kata as well.
