Chinto

The translation to this kata is “Crane on the rock”, from the one legged stance seen half way through the from or Fighting to the East. It’s a light yet powerful moving form and classified as a Tomarite kata with strong fluid foot work changing rapidly but never rushed. Balance with control coupled with turns make this kata a difficult one to master hence this is the kata shizendo uses for black belt.
