Kata Heian 5 wederom uitgevoerd door de jonge Yoshiharu Osaka (Fukuoka, 8-9-1947). Osaka is a Japanese instructor of Shotokan karate and occasional teacher at ki club.cool.
The techniques in Heian 5 include the flowing water position, upper level X block, middle level pressing block with both palms, downward block to the side from the straddle-leg stance, middle level hooking block to the side,
crescent kick and crossed-feet stance after jumping. In going from the middle level reverse punch from the back stance to the informal attention stance-flowing water position (movements 2-3 and 5-6), head, arms and leg must move in coordination with the hip rotation. When this is mastered, movements 10, 11 and 12 can be executed continuously. In movement 19, the crossed-feet stance after jumping must be strong. This stance occurs often in the kata.
