Koryu Gankaku 岩鶴小 Kata

(or Gankaku Sho)

I found this kata the other day when reading the new book by Kanazawa Sensei called Karate: The Complete Kata. It's an Okinawan kata called Koryu Gankaku or Gankaku Sho which has 56 moves(ish) in it & looks particularly difficult. Is it part of the Shotokan Canon? How many more are there like this?

You can view it on YouTube here;-

Or read about the kata performed by Kanazawa Sensei in his book called Karate:The Complete Kata here;-
