Kururunfa

MEANING:
HOLDING GROUND

STYLE:
HARD (Go) & SOFT (Ju)


Description:

Kururunfa epitomizes the ideals of Go-"hard and Ju-"soft".   Stance transitions are quick and explosive while the hands techniques are employed using "muchimi" or a heavy, sticky movement.  As in the other kata of Goju-Ryu, it is quite evident that grappling and close-quartered fighting is the favored fighting style.  The same kanji "fa" is found in Saifa. Again, this would suggest a strong emphasis on grappling. Where most other styles' Kata concentrate on "block/punch", it is obvious from the unique techniques that this is not the case with Goju-Ryu.
