Higoanna Sensei


This page is devoted to The Grand Master, Morio Higoanna Sensei.

This video is a series of three excellent HD res videos, interviewing Higoanna Sensei. Even though there are no subtitles, you can still get a sense for what he is saying and the demonstrations are wonderful.

Part 3 of 3: Interview with Higoanna Sensei

Highlights include a demonstration of kata Sanchin (check out Sensei Terauchi’s shoulders at the end of the kata). Sensei Higoanna also explains the method of Sanchin, how he roots his feet to the ground and explains the meaning of the word San-chin (“three battles” – mind, body and spirit).
