Gekisai Dai Ni Kata

The two regular kata that students first learn in studying Gojuryu are Gekisai Dai Ichi, and the derivative version of it, Gekisai Dai Ni

The main difference between the former and the latter is that Dai Ni introduces open handed techniques and new stances. It is in Gekisai Dai Ni that students are introduced to the neko ashi dachi stance, where it is combined with the wheel block (mawashe uke), which is initially learned and refined in Sanchin kata.
