SHOTOKAN KARATE KATA 🥋⛩ | By Jason Leung
Today I practiced Shotokan Karate Kata “Gankaku”.
Kata Gankaku was my go to competition kata back in the day.
Gankaku is one of the most difficult karate kata to master and execute. The Shotokan Kata has a very complex rhythm, and sequences where great balance is required. The kata gets its name “Gankaku” from the signature one legged yoko geri towards the end of the kata. It appear as though one is a “Crane on a rock”.
Again, very difficult to master, but at the same time very rewarding and should be reserved for more advanced shotokan karate practitioners.
