My style does not have this kata because Wado kai doesn't have any Naha te katas. I still find it very interesting and think it looks benificial to learn. There is a lady in our class who is a shodan in goju ryu and I asked her if she could show it to me, she said she would be happy to teach it to me so thats awsome! but I don't know what level it is normally taught at, I'm a green belt but I think I could take on this kata since I have someone teaching me as aposed to a book or video. Thoughts? comments?

Sure, she could teach you the kata. That's great! It's taught at different levels,but I think it's considered a beginner kata in most schools.
Tensho is considered a beginner kata as well,but I wasn't shown until shodan.
Whatever level kata,whatever rank you are,if you beleive it will add to your art do it.

The Sanchin kata differes from style to style,None the less,I believe the Sanchin kata to be the most difficult kata to master.

Btw It's alway's a good idead to practice the Sanchin kata after you've completed all of your excercises in the dojo/dojang.

Yes! Because if you do it right,you won't have the energy to do much else.

I really think thats great I wish I knew some one to teach me Sanchin. I could learn it from a video but as you said Crash its better to learn from someone.

You could also try picking up the Uechi-ryu version of sanchin. I do both Goju and Uechi. You can find some helpful videos at http://www.uechi-ryu.com.

Sanchin Kata is a basic kata, at your level Green belt is a good start, you know the basic stances, blocks and strikes.

Though its a basci kata it is a life time presuit, it is the begining of Iron body, developing chi concept, and placing it where you want it. Enough for now, it is a good basic kata to build strength and overall health. Its believed.

I teach it to the elderly and depress young to relieve stress, through breathing, Isometric and meditation.

I agree sanchin cannot be viewed as a 'complex' kata, however it is a very ESSENTIAL practise as has been stated.

It is considered an extremly fundamental form in many many arts.

Any of you guys practice sanchin while someone beats on you?

How is the uechi-ryu version diffferent? I know two versions,Myagi sanchin and Higaonna sanchin.

it is performed faster and with open hand techniques i believe.

I practise the Miyagi version I beleive (goju ryu style).

We dont currently beat each other although I am encouraging this practise along with slightly more dynamic breating. which is how I used to train the form.
