Itosu no Rohai Sandan (鷺牌) Kata

The Rohai (鷺牌) originated from the Tomari-te school of Okinawan martial arts. It was called Matsumora Rohai, after Kosaku Matsumora, who was presumably its inventor. Master Itosu later took this kata and developed three kata from it: Rohai shodan, Rohai nidan, and Rohai sandan. In Shitoryu beside “Matsumora ha Rohai, also precise all these three katas from Master Itosu Anko school. Itosu Rohai Sandan unlike Rohai Shodan and “Matsumora ha Rohai” does not have “Sagi Ashi Dachi”.
