Pervez B Mistry avec SANCHIN Three Battles: Anatomy and Physiology of Sanchin Kata
Sanchin, a karate form that dates back more than five hundred years, is one of the most powerful of katas. Literally "three battles," Sanchin offers those who practice it properly and consistently the opportunity to unify the body, the mind, and the spirit-and attain complete harmony. "Three Battles Sanchin," written by Shihan Pervez B. Mistry, examines the history, physiology, and practical applications of this valuable kata. A certified personal trainer and post-rehabilitative sports injury specialist as well as a Goju-ryu master, Shihan Mistry explains the effect of Sanchin on the musculoskeletal, respiratory, and nervous systems. He also delves into the kata's history and origins and discusses the fighting applications of the form. An exceptional tool for students, "Three Battles Sanchin" also offers advice to instructors for both teaching the kata and improving student performance. Practitioners of martial arts in general and Goju-ryu in particular will find Shihan Mistry's comprehensive discussion of Sanchin a valuable resource.
Shihan Pervez B. Mistry has taught martial arts since 1964, when he was not much more than a student himself. He holds a fourth-degree black belt in judo and a hachi-dan (eighth-degree) black belt in Goju-ryu karate. He is also a certified personal trainer and post-rehabilitative sports injury specialist.
Shihan Mistry’s teaching career spans fifty years. Of the tens of thousands of students who have passed through his doors, many have become respected teachers in their own right. He has trained members of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police, the Border Security Force, the Central Reserve Police Force, the Naval Commandos, the Dogra Battalion of the Indian Army, and the Black Cat Commandos, among other military and law enforcement organizations.
Today, Shihan Mistry and his wife live in Mumbai, India, where he is committed to empowering Indian women and travels the country to teach self-defense seminars to women from all walks of life.
