"Kingai sanchin" literally means "China sanchin," and he was led to believe that kingai was how sanchin was practiced in China.
He went on to tell me that Uehara's dojo is the only current one that teaches kingai - even the Okinawan dojos have dropped it. I can't remember if I ever showed you the video footage I shot from Uehara's school in 2004, but if you (or Vinny) would like a copy of that DVD, I'd be more than happy to rip one and send it your way.
I recall you teaching us China Sanchin last time you were here, Seth, but we would love to have the DVD.
It was some sanchin all right.
