Neville Billimoria #2 Cracking the Code of Kata Pinan (Heian) Sandan, Yondan and Godan Now you can go beyond the simple understanding of the Pinan/Heian series as being developed by Master Itosu only for teaching school children. Building on the framework developed in DVD #1, you can deeply explore the meaning and value of the complete Pinan/Heian kata series as ab developmental journey from self protection to self perfection -in and of itself! You will learn: -How the traditional weapons (Bow and Arrow) of the Warrior are used to express the 5 levels of self development/self defense in karate-do -Why Pinan Sandan is the “teaching kata” -How the creator modifies Pinan Yondan to cultivate spontaneity -Why the entire Pinan series ends in an Eagle block-symbolizing the freedom that can be achieved thru traditional martial arts practice -How the 5 Pinan kata tie into Miyamoto Musashi’s Book of 5 Rings and Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ch’ing A must have DVD for every traditionalist!
