Instructions for Tachimura No Naihanchi - KishimotoDi Kata
Tachimura no Naihanchi is the first kata taught in the KishimotoDi system, and is the foundation of the style. All of the material taught after Tachimura no Naihanchi builds off of, or feeds back to, the material taught in Naihanchi.
For instructions regarding other KishimotoDi kata, please visit the main KishimotoDi kata section. If you are looking for the katas of other Karate styles (i.e. Shotokan or Wado-Ryu), please visit the main Katas & Forms section.
