The kata Chi-i[edit]

Chi-i no kata is a kata, which was used as basic kata during the experimental period of Genseiryu. To mature the style of Genseiryu, it was decided to discard the kata, together with Ten-i and Jin-i.

Nowadays one can see its varieties by styles derivated from Genseiryu, like Ryounkai, Genwakai and Seidokai.
