  • •The physical movements of the Ghost Hand Kata, a unique kata and visualization developed by Sensei to help reset your mental well being.

  • •The unique 1 Day / 1 Lifetime Kata created by Sensei derived from the unification of the Ghost Hand and Sanchin Kata. It is the kata that should be performed at least daily. Performing the Kata once a day takes less than 3 minutes but yields a bountiful harvest of wellness & mindfulness. You can easy perform the kata multiple times each day. With Sensei’s guidance, you can also customize the kata to achieve your own individual wellness & mindfulness goals.
