Taikyoku Shodan

English Translation: First Cause

Original Okinawan Name: none

Information: There are six Taikyoku katas, created by Gichin Funakoshi as training aids only. Taikyoku is the Japanese pronunciation of Taiji / Tai Chi, which hints to earlier links from China to Okinawa and then Japan.

This video is not Sensei Paul Walker, as the Taikyoku kata are not practised in SKIF.
