セーパイ 十八
Today is a good Sunday for "Hanami" which literally means seeing Sakura or cherry blossoms. They are in full bloom. This time I performed Kata "Sepai" in front of Sakura. Sepai means eighteen. Maybe this name derives from famous Shaolin kungfu, Shih-pa Lohan Shou or Eighteen Lohan Hands. I have no idea whether this kata has something to do with the Shaolin kungfu or not.
