Al,

Okamoto taught me Sho Chiku Bai Kata, Hakutsuru Kata, Ozeki Kata, Geikeikan Kata...etc, Dai Nama Bieru Kata was my favorite.



Be well,

Howard
Hello Howard,

I can vouch for the general all-round efficacy of Hakutsuru (White Crane) Kata. Its origins lie in the mountainous region to the east of Hiroshima and the kata is clearly named after the beautiful birds that come to spend their summer months here.

Best wishes,

P A Goldsbury
