    What's in a name?

    Kano visited Hawaii several times in the 1920s and 1930s, and it would...

    Hi Mr. Svinth--

    It's a Kodokan kata, not koryu. I imagine some styles like Sosuishitsu Ryu may use it, due to their close relationship with Kodokan. Not sure of the date of origin, but it's...

    The Go-no-Sen no Kata was indeed associated mainly with Waseda University and was not part of the syllabus at Kodokan Dojo. Kawaishi brought it to Europe.
