Tensho

Turning or Flowing hands (転掌) Created by Chojun Miyagi, and is derived from a softer Chinese form of Sanchin. Tensho kata was created by Miyagi Chojun Sensei.  Tensho literally means `turning hands.'  This is the `ju' (softness) of Goju-ryu and Miyagi Sensei developed this kata from the Rokkishu form kata of the White Crane Kung Fu system.  The hand movements and breathing require a high level of co-ordination.
