Junior Black Belt Program

FOR YELLOW BELTS

 

By now you've done a lot of sparring.

You're probably getting real good at

blocking kicks and punches too.

 

After we block a punch or kick, we can hit our opponent back and score a point because of

something they are doing

or

something they are NOT doing

 

To make sure that WE'RE not the one who is making those mistakes we

begin to learn

SANCHIN KATA

(Pronounced "Sawn-Chin Ka-Ta"")

 

 

It's a lot harder to do then it looks.

We don't want to make any mistakes.

 

This is a shortened version of

SANCHIN KATA

and is called

SANCHIN SHORT FORM

MEMORIZE IT!

 

The word SANCHIN means

THREE  BATTLES

 

The "battles" are between our

MIND, BODY, and SPIRIT.

 

Our MIND makes the mistake of getting distracted, not paying attention, and not remembering what to do.

Our BODY makes the mistake of not being in the shape it needs to be.

We want our arms and legs to be somewhere special so they can protect us. We want our muscles to move in special ways so we can hit better.

 

Our Spirit makes the mistake of giving up, not trying your best, and feeling defeated.

 

To do SANCHIN correctly takes a long time.

To help you learn and practice at home, you can watch the video and print out the

instructions.
