Papuren (八 步 連) Kata

Papuren (八 步 連) (also pronounce Happoren or Paipuren means “Eight steps at the same time”) is a kata of karate which was introduced by a White Crate Kung fu expert in the island of Okinawa from master Wu Xian Hui “Go Genki”.  Master Kenwa Mabuni learned 3 katas (Papuren, Nipaipo and Haffa) from Master Go Kenki and modified and simplified them and added to his Shitoryu Syllabus.
