Goju-Ryu Kata – Kururunfa

Goju-Ryu Kata – Kururunfa

This page will help you to learn Kururunfa, one of the katas used in Goju-Ryu Karate. The meaning of the Kururunfa kata is “Holding & Striking Suddenly”.

There are 12 official “core” katas for Goju-Ryu. However, the Sanchin kata is occasionally separated into two katas by some schools. Therefore, people are sometimes confused and think there are 13 Goju-Ryu katas. In addition, some Goju-Ryu schools and organizations borrow katas from other styles and they might use more than the official 12 katas.

For additional Goju-Ryu Karate katas, please visit the main Goju-Ryu Katas page. To learn other Karate katas (i.e. Shotokan), please visit the main Katas & Forms section.
