Kenyu Chinen

Kenyu Chinen  is a real inspiration for all karate students to keep on a lifetime practicing the way of the empty hand. In this video he presents the kata naihanchi sandan and pinan shodan with some bunkai.

In this episode, Kenyu Chinen sensei talks about his teachers of karate and kobudo, and his own philosophy of martial arts. He spends half of the year in France, and half of the year in Okinawa. This video was made possible with the kindness of Chinen sensei’s students for allowing me to film at their seminar, and for their assistance with interpreting and translating. Presented by Chris Willson.
