Hello ive been studying shotokan karate for over ten years i am a shodan and on one of master yaguchi's last vists he presented to us jiin. since then i have practiced the kata many times and proceeded to use it in the 2003 nationals in orlando florida. i really like the kata a lot. but whenevr i look for a discription or text on that kata i notice there is none. i also dicoverd that it is the same for wankan. WHY is this?

ALL feedback is appriciated ^_^

Not sure about wankan, though I got some info somewhere, however, Jitte, Jiin and Jion are called Temple kata, and what I was told were not directly in any system, but were added to various system. The version I have are from Hayashi-HA Shito Ryu, but was told by a Shorin Shihan that the temple kata are not in Okinawan syllabus. Soke Terou Hayashi has the Temple Kata, all 3 available on tape from Dragon Times if you are interested.

The "24 Fighting Chickens" web site has a lot of good information for Shotokan stylists, and if you look at the kata link, you will find references to both Jiin and Wankan.

Videos of all the Shotokan kata are at a number of web sites that have them. Here is one:
