Before the Fykyu Gata were developed or formalized, kata Sanchin, or ƒTƒ“ƒ`ƒ“ asnd Tensho, or ƒeƒ“ƒVƒ‡ƒE were the basaic exercises in Goju-Ryu school in Okinawa during 1920s.  Therefore, they were called kihon (basic) kata even after the Kihon and Kihon Ido program was formalized.

Both Sanchin and Tensho utilized isotonic tention of kinesthesia accompanied with laud respiration for the primary exercise.  Some describe the exercise as a form of dynamic meditation, others express the physiological maintnance for the respiration, and the rest may intemperate this as both or somethingelse.
