KANSHIWA (KANbun + shuSHIWA)
Created by master Kan-ei Uechi. Is the second Kata of Uechi-Ryu after Sanchin. Named in the past as Kanshabu.
With this Kata the basic movements of the style are learned. First three knocks are executed with Shouken, but actually there are replaced to Daiken (Seiken) for beginners. Kanshiwa is the only Kata of Uechi-Ryu that applies Daiken.
The most important part is the combination Mawashiuke - Hiji - Riken and Osaezuki.
