Itosu Jutte, Kenpo Gaisetsu (1930)

Here is my informal translation of the kata "Master Itokazu's Jutte" as described in Kenpō Gaisetsu (1930). As far as I know, this is the first time this book (or a part of it) has been translated into English and made public.


As known, the mentioned master Itokazu is none other than the famous Itosu Ankō, and the kata presented in the book is a truly unique version of Jutte, certainly typical of the Tomari tradition, with different application ideas suggested directly in the text. I hope you can appreciate, thanks.
