Gekisai Dai Ni
Gekisai means "attack and smash". They were created by Chojun Miyagi
in 1940 and are beginner's kata,the first to be learned in some styles. Miyagi
Sensei felt that he needed some simpler katas to introduct karate to school
Gekisai Dai Ni iintroduces Neko Ashi Dachi. Both katas
include Jodan Uke which is unique in Goju. Miyagi Sensei wanted to include
tJodan Uke, the first and fourth move in both katas into Goju. No other
Goju kata contain these techniques.
