Does any one else know all 10 taikyoku katas?

taikyoku shodan,nidan,sandan,yondan,godan,rokudan…

most people won't know T 7-10 they were invented by Kuniba

and my sensei was thought some of them before his death, and he learned the others from the notes he inherited

I was just wandering because their must be someone else kuniba thought them to. it would be wierd if my dojo was the only one in the world that thought those katas

P.S. my sensei is sensei abe cerezo

    I once knew all ten and I am sure one of my old instructors still remembers/practices them. They were practiced in the old seishin kai and the old NKJU. I met others who practiced 1-7 like you wrote but still there were others who also knew all ten so I imagine these kata are no secret...

    I had a booklet that a former student of mine gave me that had all ten Taikyoku Kata in it. The booklet was only on the Taikyoku Kata. So if a book is out there, I see no reason to believe that only a few people know all ten Kata. In the book Soke Joeseph "Joe" Ruiz is doing the Kata. Ruiz Soke was one of my instructors in the 1970's. For those that don't know who Ruiz Soke is, He was a high ranked member of the Seishinkai under Sogo Kuniba. So these Kata are no secret. They are all basic Kata.

    yes. In the IKKU under Soke J.R.Ruiz, we still practice the ten Taikyoku.
