Does anyone know of a kata called "Kensei"? Is there a DVD or YouTube video of this form?

Thanks,
Matt

Or do you mean "Gensei"? Since that is a karate style that was developed after WW2 by an Okinawan called Seiken Shukumine, which has some unique kata, not to be found in mainstream styles.

I'm not sure what "Kensei" means or even if that is the proper spelling. All I know is that it is the name of a Kata.

'Kensei: Sacred Fist' was a very good fighting game on the PS1, outside of that context, I have never heard reference to 'kensei' on here.

The kata is on the list of this website

http://shidokan.dimentech.com/kata.html

Might be worth while e-mailing them or going in to detail a bit more. Where did you hear of it and what are the other spellings?

I would venture to say that the Kensei Kata is a creation of this organizations founder.

I'd found the Shidokan website, but got no response. My instructor, Charles Minter of Atlanta, learned this kata in the 1970s...not entirely sure who he learned it from whether it was another student or his teacher, Master Yoo Jin Kim.

I've never seen it, and I don't know that my instructor remembers it all.

Thanks for everyone's help,
Matt

Kensei is an old karate kata, that im learning this weekend.
Its name is derivated from Mabuni KENwa, that as you know is one of the biggest names around karate. It Has a lot of movements with yours hands open and it isnt easy nor short.
Hope i could help
