Shisochin Kata resembles the Dragon.
The Nukite strike could demonstrate the defiant mood of the Dragon, hissing and displaying it’s tongue.
The step back and then quickly moving forward suggests Karate Ni Sente Nashi and the Mawashi like movement could be the wings of the Dragon in defence.
The distinctive Zenkustu Dachi is the element of Fire and the four different directions that the Kata displays suggest the Dragon attacking forward and at the same time defending the rear end with its tail.
The palm heel strike to the face suggests the advancing of the flame and the downward palm heel strike could represent the tail in defence.
The Hiki Uke movement and the kick into Zenkustu Dachi could represent the descent of the Dragon crushing its foe.
To the last move, Tora Guchi, this could be the Dragon proudly displaying it’s triumph.
