Heian Godan – Important Points and Bunkai
Heian Godan is the 5th and last kata in the Heian series and has 23 counts. It is perhaps the most athletic of the Heian series and visually very exciting. This kata employs movements, techniques and concepts that challenge the skills of the karateka.
The contrast between fast and slow is stressed in Heian Godan and the karateka is put to the test by performing the movements, including a jump, with speed and balance.
