Its THE form of Okinawan karate of the Naha Te lineages.
I remember that program and the fat guy was a Goju Ryu student who did get a beating from his teacher. Okinawan Karate is sometimes referred to as Kichigai Karate or Insane Karate as the training seems to go WAY beyond what most dilletantes would even attempt.
It weeds out the wussbags very early when you start to kick each other in the thighs with shin kicks.
Good old fashioned body hardening. I miss my old instructor. He used to wack the crap out of my thighs with a stick as I did Naebojin.

I wasn't talking about you in that post, by the way.
I was making a joke about the guy in the video.
That would make an awesome skit.

Don't be so sensitive.
Take up body hardening.

SFGOON, did the sensei happen to be bald fellow? Might be same guy who demonstrated Okinawan Karate at Bercy last year. Way of the Masochism, let me tell you. :help:
and humble, too!

Bald little churlish Japanese, yes. It was brutal, he hit the poor fat bleached blonde bastard in the gut and he curled up like a shrimp. Ladies in the background were laughing at him as he rolled around on the ground hacking up his own anus.
It didn't look like any sort of conditioning, it looked like pain for pain's sake. The guy he was doing it to obviosly had some sort of self esteem problem - he looked like a snowman with a gland problem in his gi. Obviously those years of body hardening hadn't done him any good.
I am a Ninja bitches!! Deal with it

I guess some people confuse taking a beating as being tough rather than learning to give one.
Seriously though Sanchin is one of the best Kata's I have found so far for conditioning.
Plus you get to breathe like Darth Vader

I vote this for quote of the day.
In addition, I've found that the shin kicks to the thigh have started to feel... "good" these days. Even when it fshould be "holy **** I'm going to fall down" it's still "Thank you Sir! May I have another!" MMMM... kote gitae, its like mothers horribly painful and mentally scarring milk.

Here is some more use for sanchin. Written by my teacher.
