Naihanchi is what we call “Tanren Gata”. Tanren means to practise or to forge. Especially “to forge” speaks volumes about how to practise and the purpose of that practise. Although at first glance the techniques are not so complicated, they contain the fundamental skills necessary to achieve quality of movement.
Naihanchi is a tool to learn how to use your body. Not simply by intellectually knowing how to use your body, but learn in the sense that your body becomes programmed to move in a certain manner. This ‘certain manner’ is Karate.
