Kakuyoku Kata Videos
Kakuyoku (crane wing) is a series of three kata. The kata were created by Tetsuhiko Asai and called "classic kata". They build on the principles of the Junro Kata, which he also created.
The order of the Kakuyoku Kata, divided into Shodan , Nidan and Sandan , is not to be regarded as mandatory, since the individual Kata do not build on one another. Asai himself believed that a kata in the series was sufficient to teach the principles contained. However, Kakuyoku Nidan was one of his favorite kata and he only called it Kakuyoku .
