Heian Kata

The five Heian kata were adopted from much older kata by Itosu Anko and so their origins can be traced all the way back to China and the orgins of karate.  Translated as "Peaceful mind" the name is said to come from an Okinawan saying Heiwa-antei "peace and calmness". The name suggests that the student who has mastered these Kata can be confident in their skills and therefore be of a "Peaceful Mind".
