This clip is a short introduction to the five Pinan Katas. The Pinan kata originated in Okinawa Pinan can be translated as “Peaceful mind peaceful safety” and were created by Anko Itosu in 1905. When Gichin Funakoshi brought karate to Japan, he renamed the kata to Heian, which is translated as “peaceful and calm”. I like to think of them as “Peace and Harmony”.
