Sanchin Workshop with Dr. Richard Fields: 11/20

Dr. Richard Fields, a 1969 Allegheny graduate, will present a Sanchin Kata workshop on Wednesday, November 20, from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m. in the Montgomery Performance Space. Kata (form) are the basis for the dissemination of information in all martial arts. Each was designed to contain the fighting techniques of the master that originated it. At the root of these katas is the deceptively simple kata of Sanchin (the Three Battles). Participants will explore the pattern of the kata (embusen) and practice the breathing. We will demonstrate how the correctness of the posture and muscle tension are tested by the teacher (sensei) through Shime. Wear a Gi if you have one. The workshop is free, but space is limited. Please email danceall@allegheny.edu or call DMS (814) 332-2813 to reserve a space.
