This kata was also passed down by Taira, who is said to have learned it from
Kamiya Jinsei. It was either created by a master called Chatan Yara or based
upon his teachings. Yara was, according to Nakamoto (1983), a karateka who lived
before Bushi Matsumura (1809-1901), and studied under Kusanku who came from
China in 1762. He also states that Yara, who held the title Peichin, lived
during the time of King Sho Boku who reigned from 1752-1795, and held a stipend
of land in Chatan, where he carried out the last years of his life. This kata
can also be found in Inoue's series.
