The Five Katas of Yagi Meitoku

By Perry Campbell, B.Sc.

The Five Katas of Yagi Meitoku

The passing of Grandmaster Yagi Meitoku at 91 (February 7, 2003) signified the end of an era in the art of Goju-ryu. He left five katas, the Meibuken katas, as his contribution to Goju-ryu karate. These katas are Yagi Meitoku’s record of the fighting practices, techniques, drills, and innovations he developed over a lifetime of study.
