Gojuryu kata as taught by Aragaki Seiro Kancho and practiced at the Gojuryu Karatedo Yoyogi Ryushinkan Dojo are listed in the photo below (read from right to left). Sanchin kata is described as kihon, or the fundamental kata. The “kaishu kata” (literally "open hand kata") are:
Gekisai Dai Ichi
Gekisai Dai Ni
Seiunchin (or Seiyunchin)
Tensho, the “soft” counterpart to sanchin kata, is listed at the end, on the very left side. We will be examining each kata in forthcoming posts, especially from the perspective of Aragaki Seiro Kancho's unpublished "Philosophy and Mindset."
