Under the Calasanz Karate, Kung Fu, Kickboxing, Boxing & Physical Arts system, this Kata that is being performed in the video above by Renee Fortin is called Ginsei San, or is also called coordination #3.
We are just performing pieces of it. For a long time all the Calasanz students have won many Kata competitions with this form. It was a great feeling the first time Calasanz sent Becka Slade a dancer to compete with this Kata in one of the toughest competitions in the world…the Kyokushin Kai tournament. Many martial artists around the world are well aware of this tournament. Any person even remotely involved in the martial arts can associate with the late Masutatsu Oyama, who accomplished what not too many Karate instructors around the world have done currently or in the past.
As a result, Becka Slade won first place! Our Kata is unique, strong. Its stances are well defined, balanced and grounded which can be seen and noticed at all times. This is one of several reasons why Calasanz is considered one of the best, well rounded, and recognized instructors in the world.
