This is an excerpt of “Soeshi no Kon” of Okinawan Taira-lineage. It is a rare kata and hitherto it is unknown if it is an original tradition, where Taira had it from, if Taira just used a fragment he came across somewhere and made his own kata from it, if one of his students further changed it, if Taira just used the famous name of Soeishi for seomething else, etc.pp.
I admit I don’t perform the techniques in the manner of any specific Okinawan dojo, in fact, I have stopped copying someone else’s habits and ideas years ago and instead do it “my way.” Also, I perform all techniques to the front, while in the original kata you would turn left, right, backwards and front. Notwithstanding, order and techniques are correct.
