    In our club, it's used for body mechanics mostly and alignment and even some techniques. Other then breathing, does sanchin really have anything to do with conditioning?

    Here are some alternate views on sanchin.

    (once more i will say that this is not an indepth guide, just a simple article)

    This thread made me realize i really lucked out when i walked through the door.




    If it is taught by tightening muslces, then man, i can understand if karate ever becomes extinct.


    Why kata is often bashed im seriosly beginning to understand.

    I think they usually suckis because we are not willing to change them.

    Do kata the way you fight i think, unless your focussing on just one thing.
    If you did Kata the way you fought woudln't it look like shadow boxing? I am not a huge kata fanatic ,I don't mind it, but I wouldn't use the traditional downward sweeping blocks or outside middle area blocks found in kata when I am sparring.

    If anyone is curious here is a video of Uechi -Ryu Sanchin kata

    http://fileserver.uechi-ryu.com/vide...n_camp2001.wmv

    Which is pretty different form the GoJu system, but to each his own.

    Here are some excellent links on the use of Sanchin in Goju and Uechi-ryu. There is also a link on the use of Naifanchi (Naebojin), the form I use in my training for tension training. In addition to history and explanation of the various kata, there are videos of Okinawan masters performing them. Some of these masters are Intangible Assets registered with the Okinawan government.

    It's interessting I recently started doing pilates to help my back and increase my core strength and I found it simillar to GoJu Sanchin in that it involved controlled breatheing, exhailinging to tighten the stomach and abs as well as slow movments isolating certain muscles.

    I like the Pilates better because instead of being felt up by a guy making sure I am in the correct form I was gropped by a hot girl making sure I was tightening my stomach muscles and glutes properly.

    Pilates (w hot pilates teacher) > Sanchin

    "Dynamic tension" exercises merely work the muscles and do virtually nothing for the tendons. While it is good as a supplementary exercise, resistance training with heavy objects should still take top priority.

    And Sanchin kata is fun.

    You can do dynamic tension all day, every day if you want. Heavy weights damage tendons slightly so they can only be conducted maybe four times per week. If you damage your tendons, your muscles will weaken themselves to protect their tendons, which is counterproductive.

    I've learned more about weightlifting in the last month than I have in the previous twelve years. Pavel Tsatouline is worth looking in to.
