Last week I learned that the Okinawans would practice Karate through kata or a dance called Ryukyu.
These exercises were developed after the practice of Martial Arts was forbidden.
The Okinawans concealed the bunkai (self-defense applications) within these Kata’s and Dances.
They were secretly turning their bodies into weapons. #boss

Does anyone else love Okinawa pop? There’s a song called 島唄 by a band called THE BOOM that I get the urge to listen to every 5 years or so. Check it out it’s amazing.
