Hello all, I was curious if anyone could give a listing of kata used in ShorinRyu ShorinKan.

Thanks

I used to do Shorinkan.

The official empty hand kata for Shorinkan are the following:

Fukyuugata Ichi, Fukyuugata Ni, Fukyuugata San
Kihon Shodan, Kihon Nidan, Kihon Sandan
Pinan Shodan, Pinan Nidan, Pinan Sandan, Pinan Yondan, Pinan Godan
Naihanchi Shodan, Naihanchi Nidan, Naihanchi Sandan
Passai Sho, Passai Dai
Chinto
Kusanku Sho, Kusanku Dai
Gojushiho


The official weapons kata for Shorinkan are the following:

Shushi no Kun (Yamanni Ryu - Shorinkan)
Sakugawa no Kun (Yamanni Ryu - Shorinkan)
Kubo no Kun (Yamanni Ryu - Shorinkan)
Sakugawa no Kun Dai Ni (Shugoro no Sakugawa no Kun)
Nakaima no Kama (Shorinkan no Kama Dai Ichi)
Shugoro no Kama (Shorinkan no Kama Dai Ni)
Shugoro no Tonfa (Shorinkan no Tonfa)
Shorinkan no Nunchaku Dai Ichi
Tonaki no Nunchaku (Shorinkan no Nunchaku Dai Ni)
Nakaima Kenkou no Sai Dai Ichi (Shorinkan no Sai Dai Ichi)
Nakaima Kenkou no Sai Dai Ni (Shorinkan no Sai Dai Ni)
Shugoro no Sai (Shorinkan no Sai Dai San)
Shugoro no Eku (Shorinkan no Eku)



Now there are extra ones I had learned in association with Kyoshi Doug Perry or his students (my teacher was Sam Ahtye), and they are as follows:

Hakutsuru
Rokishu
Takemyoshi no Nuntebo Dai Ichi
Miyazato no Tekko Dai Ichi
Miyazato no Tekko Dai Ni
Takemyoshi no Tekko Dai Ni
Tanbo no Kata
Hamahiga no tonfa

There are more extra "optional" kata, but I never learned them. (I also had more kata learned from other styles, but I haven't listed them here)

Now that I am sort of "nonaligned" and under a different teacher, my kata syllabus is much, much smaller and I really do prefer it that way. At some point, you turn into a kata collector and it is hard to refine the ones you already know.
