Classification Shorei-Ryu Shorin-Ryu

Level Medium
Aoyagi   is   a   very   harmonic   Kata.   It   looks   light,   fluid   and   with   elegance.   It's   said   that Mabuni did create Ayoagi for to teach the art of self defense to women. Aoyagi   isn't   a   really   new   Kata.   Only   the   beginn   with   Zenkutsu   Dachi   and   Ushiro   Empi, Yoko    Empi    I    could'nt    find    yet    in    one    of    the    traditional    Kata.    Possible    that    this technique is made by some examples of Nipaipo. All   the   rest   of   the   Kata   is   put   togheter   of   parts   of   the   Kata:   Seienchin,   Jion,   Chinte, Sochin and Jitte in the nearly orignial ways. But   also   there   are   a   version   of   Aoyagi   to   find   in   the   Seito-Shito-Ryu   of   Kenzo   Mabuni which   is   in   details   totaly   different   to   the   forms   of   Hayashi-ha-Shito-Ryu   or   Mabuni-ha- Shito-Ryu.

Classification Shorei-Ryu
Style Shito-Ryu
Level Medium
The   name   of   the   Kata   can   be   reason   to   suppose   that   it   is   a   short   version   of   Happoren, but   this   isn't   the   case.   The   Kata   follows   the   principles   of   the   Naha-te   and   shows   in concept   and   spirit   a   relationship   to   Suparimpei.   Also   in   Happo   Sho   we   see   that techniques   will   be   repeated   for   times.   But   Happo   Sho   is   much   shorter   and   we   find   no such dynamic combinations like in Suparimpei.

The   Kata   seems   to   be   a   summary   of   the   main   techniques   of   the   Kata   Kosokun   Dai   and Kosokun   Sho.   In   fact   we   find   mainly   techniques   from   Kosokun   Dai   and   only   one technique,   the   jumped   Ushiro   Geri,   from   Kosokun   Sho.      In   counterpart   to   Kosokun   Dai the Kata shows a sideway Enbusen and is also shorter. It includes only two techniques which are not from Kosokun Dai or Kosokun Sho.

Shinsei   is   a   summary   of   the   Kata   Gekisai   Dai   Ichi   and   Gekisai   Dai   Ni.   It   can   be   count to   the   Naha-te   (Shorei).   But   Shinsei   is   much   more   harmonic   and   comfortable   in   the performance   than   the   both   Gekisai   Kata.   Also   it   shows   a   special   kind   of   calmness   and elegance. The techniques are very good to use in self defense.
