Haffa (白鳥) Kata

Haffa” White Bird” or Also translated as “100 Birds”.The Kata was brought to Okinawa by Master Go Kenki and found it’s way to Shitoryu by Ryuso Kenwa Mabuni. The concept of Haffaand the performance of the techniques is very close to the Hakucho or Hakkaku. The Kata is without any high difficulties, and it is a good Kata for to start to study the White Crane Fist of Master Go Kenki (Wú Xiánguì).
