Held on the 6th November 2010 The kiwi team were the first representatives from an overseas dojo to take the stage.

Rohai:
The composer of this kata is also unknown, but it has a long history as well. This kata also was mostly practiced in the village of Tomari. The characteristic of this kata is the one-foot stances where the other foot is drawn to deliver a quick snap-kick. It is a short kata but is very elegant looking.
