the first kata my fellow students and I are taught is called Hiji-uchi-go-ho. Roughly translated as "5 ways of elbow striking".

I've searched the internet allover for more info on this kata and not found a thing -- does anyone else know anything of this kata?

Rest assured I'm not following some weird thread of training --- I also practise jitte, bassai dai, seinchin and seipai, so there are plenty of traditional kata in our repertoire!

Can't wait to hear your responses guys and girls

No Mike I haven't heard of it but it does sound very interesting. Can you describe it?

I find working with elbow strikes to be very usefull in helping to keep my shoulders loosened up.

Many times there are katas that have been developed for use inside a school to work or practice things that the sensei considers important that are not covered to their satisfaction in any other form.

ok - here goes - rough description coming up:

1) yoi
2) heko dachi gedan harai uke (left hand)
3) step forward right leg zenkutsu dachi - right arm uppercut elbow strike.
4) step back to right leg nekoashi dachi block gedan harai uke.
5) step and turn 90degrees to the left into sanchi dachi - righthand roundhouse elbow strike bringing the left hand to right elbow with a slapping motion. Kiai at this point.
6) Pivot 180 degrees blocking haito with left hand.
7) step forward with right foot, turning 90 degrees left into naifanshin dachi striking underarm elbow strike.
flick left foot up (bunkai= sweeping an opponents foot) and go down into shiko dachi striking down with right elbow - fist ending infront of your face. (attacking prone opponent)
9) Yoi.

Phew -- well - thats obviously a very basic summary of the moves -- the bunkai etc. are of course a little more involved! Maybe that may jog a few memories.
