Annanko (安南光) Kata

Annanko (安南光), ‘Peace from the South’ is a kata from Tomari-te system. Its history in Okinawan Karate is relatively short in comparison to other kata as it was composed and created by Master Chotoku Kyan. Its meaning is “Light from the South” or “Peace from the South”, as it is thought to originate when Master Kyan returned from a trip to south of China (Current Taiwan).
