Sorry, no. Im not in IKO1.
Someone posted youtube links on K4L long ago, but I cannot find them now.
They are supposedly included in the official IKO1 Kata DVD series (released 2 years ago or so) with Ryu Narushima, though. But I have not found it intriguing enough to buy them and check.

Searching for vids of The kata, I find out that Soki is also known as "Bo kata 3" and that Chun no kon (or chiun, choun or whatever spelling variation) is known as "Bo kata 2", while "Bo kata 1" is simply "bo kata 1".
Taizen seems like a unarmed kata, though.

SOKI - New kata for IKO1, required for 2 dan
Gankaku - Trad kata from Shotokan. Required in kyokushins childhood, long since removed.
HANGETSU -Trad kata from Shotokan. Required in kyokushins childhood, long since removed.
CHUN NO KON -Bo kata (Kon=okinawan dialect for Bo staff)- Required in kyokushins childhood, long since removed.

Some Kata (originating from shotokan) I have seen referred to as old kyokushin (or possibly even pre-kyokushin, back in the "oyama karate jutsu" days) katas now removed, but have failed to get confirmation on:
Jion
Jitte
Empi.
Agreed.

And YOWZER! Even more?! My CPU can't handle the required load as it is!

Osu!

FredInChina, Saifa/ Saiha and Sepai are also of the Naha Te lineage of Higaonna Kanryo, although the Sepai has been modified to be only a distant relative of the original.

As for the determination of Beginner vs Advanced, I think that's a whole new nest of vipers........

Osu!

I would think the above ones should go under the list of katas of older times as they were the shotokan ones Mas Oyama would have done with Funakoshi.

Quote:
Taizan - New kata for IKO1, 1 dan. created by Matsui.
Maybe a listing for new developments?

Quote:
Katas of older times (removed) 5

Jion - "Oyama karate jutsu days"
Jitte - "Oyama karate jutsu days"
Empi - "Oyama karate jutsu days"
These were also and are shotokan kata

Quote:

Bo Kata sono 1 - Chion Kata Kyokushin
Bo Kata sono 2 - Chun no kon (or chiun, choun, Chion) - Kyokushin
Bo Kata sono 3 - Soki
Tonfa Kata
In old syllabi of IKO, the Kusarigama was also mentioned. The Kyokushin Kan group seems to be focussing on a lot of weapons kata and other now.

Quote:
Other non kyokushin katas sometimes used

Sanseru
Tetsuhiko Asai Kata
This would not be as widespread ...

Quote:

Ichigai Kata
Happono No Kazushi (32 movements)
As mentioned, maybe put it as new developments or modern day introductions??

The Juji kata could go as new developments (Kyokushin Kan) - the tate version could be something akin to Ura?

Thank you for the comments, suggestions and additions Ashiharakaicho, I'll let it run for a little while and make the proper corrections based on the community's contribution.

Tate form of a katas are regular katas done in a specific variation, like the Ura version of Taikyoku and pinan.
Basically, it is kata done on a straight line, with all turns being 180 degree -no turning to the sides or at angles. If there is a turn in the original kata you do it as a full 180 degree turn, always. So you end up walking up and down a straight line while doing the kata.
While I personally do not see the point, it is common in some organizations. I do not think you will see it in a Japanese dojo, though.
I think it originated in north america (read: Canada).

I've seen Kancho Matsushima doing it and some members of his organisation. Haven't seen many others doing it though.

When I was with an IKO 3 dojo some years back, we used to do this in the middle of the street at night. We did it quite often, and there seemed to be a preference for rainy and cold days. A bit unnerving with automobiles whizzing by you on both sides. I see very little practical use for this if the associated throws/takedowns are never introduced with a linear kata. (yes folks, there are a few take downs in our katas).

Explanation to me as to why we did this kata??? Confidence builder to help with performing kata outside of 4 walls.

OSU!

Thanks - this is new to me - any explanation on the embusen or the thoughts behind these kata?

They are also new to me. Didn't see them at Mitsumine and have not heard about them yet but maybe we will soon.

OSu!

reminds me of a prison karate style that a guy developed in a small prison cell
I was never able to judge for myself whether it was a just a joke or something serious.

here's a video:
Quote:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbUsmDZyENI


Karateka Slobodan Radojev Mitric, known by the nickname KARATE BOB, trained from his sixteenth year in the traditional Shotokan Karate Style ...
...
KARATE BOB wound up in prison, where he spent a total of more than 17 years ...
But from the first day of captivity, Karate Bob did not give up.
The cells in which he was imprisoned, were everywhere less than 2 meters wide and 3 meters long. ...
...
KARATE BOB DECIDED TO TO CREATE A NEW KARATE STYLE!
He christened it:
CEL-CAN-DO
KARATE BOB modified Zen Kutsu-dachi, Kokutcu Dachi, Kiba dachi and all other Karate positions down to very short movements (steps), so that in this small space a really new KARATE STYLE was born: "SLOMIBO CEL-CAN-DO"
but now I have really gone off topic, sorry about that.

Osu Spirit, thank you for that.
Can you tell me more about Ten No Kata?


OSu!


[edit] I looked it up (thank you Google )
Apparently it is a kata created by Gishin Funakoshi as a way to train beginners on the stability of the stances and basic techniques.
Here are 3 links where it is described:
http://www.tjska.com/ten_no_kata_omote.html
http://www.cleckheatonkarate.co.uk/tennokat.pdf
http://havasukarate.com/TEN-NO-KATA.html

Are you practicing/teaching this kata at Kuma Karate Spirit?
Do you know of other kyokushin dojos/orgs that are using it?

Osu!

Talking

It's all about how much green your willing to let go for the info......


As I understand it (which is limited) it was an early shotokan training kata.
It is not a I, or H, or even angle paten kata.
It starts and end in yoi dachi, stepping out & back into Zen;
It has 10 phases or groups of basic blocks and punches...
It is actually one of my favorite kata's.
Bunkai is not needed since it is more of common sense/learning etc type kata.

I'm sure it was or had its introduction into Kyokushin either through Oyama or the converter Branch chiefs/Yudansha that came to Kyokushin in the 60-70's.

reading old post from myself (?!? -apparently my memory keeps getting worse) on a similar thread here on the forum, I find out that taizan is a tonfa kata.

While I cannot prove it, i THINK (or strongly suspect) that the kyokushin Taizan and Soki are versions of these kata (done here by oyama karate guys in Poland). If so they are hardly a invention of Matsui:
taizan
Soki

And here we have bo kata 1 & 2 from IKO1 in scotland
