Note from Gary Rooks - Hi, I have conducted a 3 year long solid KJKS study on the kata Naihanchi series. I researched it's entire history, What era where it came from. How it came to Okinawa and when. It was one kata in origin and separated into 3 kata in Okinawan Karate. I have the methods of what the kata contains. It only uses the blood pool hand. I have it mapped out with the Bubishi and have the accurate translation of the name and real name. Okinawa renamed it Naihanchi. I have I would say a 95% accurate bunkai  for the techniques and mapped it out to the 36 points , 5 methods of attack, Polarity, Sound directional foot work pattern and body attacks. This I would like to focus on teaching at this year's IKC Sir.
