First time starting a topic here, after lurking for many years :-)
My question: if you were to list possible source kata’s for the Pinan series, what kata’s would be on that list?
I’m aware of Kushanku being a major source, just as Passai and Naihanchi. Those are kata’s I practise at this time, so I can see the link.
Chinto also seems to be a major source. I’m not familiar with that kata yet, but I can see how some of its movements relate to Pinan sandan and godan.
Any other suggestions?
