Dynamic Tension in Sanchin

Postby NEB » Sat Jun 15, 2019 5:21 pm

Greetings folks!

I was wondering if anyone here has heard of, taught or learned Sanchin kata being practiced with dynamic tension/muchimi. Not at a slow pace, I mean going through the form at a normal (fast) pace but maintaining dynamic tension in the shoulders and arms while doing all the movements.

NEB, Sure, why not try it for a while and see if there is a gain. I wouldn't teach a beginner that way, but assuming you are a dan-ranked guy, you should feel free to experiment. That's how science and art advance.

Well, I ask because we've always done it this way. Mind you, its not done with full tension, but we do maintain some during the practice with good results. The kata is still performed at normal speed.
