Jin is a character in the "Tekken" game series. In one of the Tekken games for the PS2 platform there is a cut scene which shows Jin performing a "kata", which is a form consisting of several self defense techniques combined/disguised for a practitioner to practice the art without another partner.

The Kata he was performing was "Naihanchi" which means "points of Hanchi". This is a form that is commonly practiced in Okinawa based styles which have various names. In order to understand more about his style, you should try to search for the history of this form. Okinawa arts such as Koryu Uchinadi (old ways), Kempo (fist method), Te (hand), Quanfa (Fist method) and ToudiJutsu are known to practice this form. I'm sure there are several others; however, I cannot speak for them all. Okinawans' practiced Quan, or Quan Fa (Kempo) long before "Karate" was named in the 1930's. It is said that in the 14th Century there were the infamous "36 families" which settled in Shuri, Naha, and Tomari and taught the Okinawans "Quanfa". The Okinawans who speak a Hogan dialect call this "Kempo", which means they are the same art.

There are many misconceptions about a form, many feel that they are useless and do not know how to interpret them. That is another subject however. The purpose of a form ("Bunkai, which is the application of the moves,") is to maim, break, or kill. There are thousands of practitioners that do not agree in this point of view due to their lack of knowledge. This lack of understanding has been passed down from instructor to instructor for generations. The USA has only had a "punching kicking art" such as Karate that originated in the 20th century in Japan since 1946. The first commercial school was opened on Phoenix Arizona by Robert Trias.

This is a brief explanation; feel free to let me know if this does not answer your questions. *Source

You would have to first know the style of karate he is supposed to know. There are many different styles of karate, one being very different from the next. Find out what style he took, then try to Google search it. See if you can find a dojo.

Is Japan a part of China?

Japan is an island archipelago in the Far East. It is speculated that Japan's LAND was once (millions of years ago, that is, before civilization was even imagined) connected to the rest of the Asian Continent with China, Korea and other Asian countries, but it's culture, language, religion, government, territory and nationality are totally different. The aboriginal people of Japan include (most prominently) the Ainus in the North (who also once lived in the northern islands now dominated by Russia) and the Ryuukyuu-jins in the South (mainly in Okinawa, they had their own kingdom called the Ryuukyuu Oukoku). Unfortunately, most of these people have died out due to epidemic and discrimination brought by the settlers. The settlers themselves came all over from Eastern Asia, such as the Mongolians and Chinese, the latter probably the most well known, leading to rather stupid go do some research questions like the above. (I put this information in here because the last answer I deleted said that karate is Chinese). Contrary to some again rather mislead and under informed belief, karate is NOT Chinese, as can be deciphered just by the name 空手 (which means "Open Hand" or "Nothing in hand" in Japanese). Karate was developed by the same Ryuukyuu-jins above, when the settlers made it a law that the aboriginal people were not to practice their culture or handle weapons, in fear of retaliation. The Ryuukyuu-jins were the first to spawn the art of karate - it's form developed and was perfected over the years, and it came to be the martial art of self-defense we know now.
