    Default Palama Set 1

    Could someone give us a technical break down of this form. It would be great to get into an indepth study of several styles forms.
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.

    Here's a video of Palama Set 1

    http://gxnapa.com/video/palama1.wmv

    1st series of moves; attacker advances with a punch, followed by a front kick, followed by another punch. Defender steps back each time outward blocking the first punch, down blocking the front kick, and inward blocking the second punch. Another attacker comes in from right side with downward club or other weapon strike. Defender x-blocks, and then turns and faces another attacker with same attack.
    Defender then steps forward (12:00) and punches, followed by a roundhouse elbow to attackers head.
    Defenders turns to face attacker behind (6:00), and outward blocks the attackers punch. He then steps in and palm strikes the attacker on the ear, redirects the strike to knifehand to the groin, and as the bends over, redirects the strike into a uppercut punch to the attackers face.

    That site has most of the 14 Palamas Sets on it. Go back to the root page, and look under Multimedia.

    From a 2005 interview with Sijo Emperado:

    Question #2
    What is the origin of the Palama Sets (Pinions)?

    The Palama Sets were my creation. I first named them "Pinan" because the Okinawan katas I had seen were called "Naihanchi" and "Pinan". My brother Joe created Palama Set 4 and Palama Set 7. I created the rest. It took a few years to develop all 14 katas (late 40's-early50's).

    Question #3
    Were the Palama Sets copied from another style?

    Palama Set 11 was basically Naihanchi Shodan, with a few changes made by me. The students nicknamed it "Dance of Death".
    The other katas were not copied from any other katas. They were just made up of a combination of techniques that we used in our training.

    Question #4
    Is the proper name "Pinan", or "Pinion"?

    The original name was "Pinan", just as the Okinawans used. Over the years, some instructors started spelling it "Pinion", "Pinnions", etc. I don't know why, but it was probably just the way they pronounced it.

    Question #5

    What katas were you taught?
    I was only taught "Naihanchi shodan". That is the only kata I ever saw Prof. Mitose or Prof. Chow teach to anyone.
