    Sounds like the same kata. There may have been three in my school but if so, the third was learned after 1st Dan (the highest rank I earned there)

    Oooh! This is helpful and explains a lot! Based on what you have here, it seems like my school (yes, an Okinawan one) used a mix of Okinawan and mainland Japanese terms. I remember Funakoshi from our history lessons but didn’t ever come across the language issue before. That’s very interesting.

    They build off of each other, using much of the same moves and sequences. Not a very strong tourney form by themselves but I used to combine Naihanchi 1 and Koryo at non sanctioned tourneys and it worked very well.
