Regarding sanchin and Tiger Trainings etc.
In Dana's first post- the first way of the training students.. just the form... I've done that... then I bring them up using the other katas... to show the next level so to speak of sanchin
(i.e. kanchiwa *sorry Mr. G if I am killing the spelling of that word* I teach the form of sanchin- the moves- then go for more power within sanchin after teaching kanchiwa.. then closer to seichin *again please sp?* back off on the hardness so to speak of the outside body- no punchy chop chop- but strong without tension- so I guess speed- more- with the power exploding at the end* nothing- then everything* split second - converted to sanchin- same thing exploding / soft strikes- with precision ) but that didn't sound like the hard tiger training that came second- after the forms- is this incorrect or like a different teaching style maybe?
meaning harder in a way-= but not too punchy/choppy I guess, but with more strength... just like conditioning it so to speak I guess... up to... which I haven't hit yet-= what sounded like a half hard half soft sanchin-
And I mean to say that a sanchin that doesn't look hard- or tense and the movements are flowing as easily as water but if one hit something would devastate the receiver- mushin for performer/as well as practicing it
did that make sense? Did it apply to your thread up there? I was thinking about the really hard hard three different sanchins too- and it made me think that maybe being able to do sanchin just in any and all ways- as a goal so to speak- would be the way to train thus- teach- so all thee ways would be good to know right?
am I close? or were you talking about something and I'm thinking of it in the wrong context- I'm not a moderator- but I teach so I thought I'd be my bold self and ask about it lol.
Would love thoughts- from everyone on teaching sanchin "s"
