Morio Higaonna Perfoming the Kata Tensho

s a follow up to yesterday’s post on the “revolving hands” please take a look at this video clip of Goju Karate master Morio Higaonna performing the Kata Tensho.  So much is contained in these movements – internal power, chi flow, martial intent, “sticky hands”, various methods of very strong and forceful breathing, the development of “root” and the harmony of mind and body.

There is literally a lifetime of study contained in this routine!


  1. That is amazing. That guy could reach right into a person and rip out their spine. Love it!

  2. Hi Nicole,

    I agree. Some of my students attended one of his seminars and found his internal strength amazing. He's the real deal.
