Meikyo

English Translation: Highly Polished Mirror


Original Okinawan Name: Rohai


Information: Whereas there are three Rohai (Rohai Jo, Rohai sho, Rohai Ge), there is only one Mei (Bright) kyo (mirror). All three Rohai where created by Anko Itosu from the Rohai of Matsumura. The name Meikyo, is apparently in reference to the symmetry of the kata.
