Meikyo (Shotokan)

meikyoThe Meikyo(old: Rōhai) kata are a family of kata practiced in some styles of karate. The name translates approximately to “vision of a Crane” or “vision of a heron”. The kata originated from the Tomari-te school of Okinawan martial arts. It was called Matsumora Rōhai, after Kosaku Matsumora, who was presumably its inventor. Gichin Funakoshi, founder of Shotokan, redeveloped and renamed Rōhai as Meikyo (明鏡).  (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meikyo)
