The strongest verifiable tradition states that this was originally a Tomari kata and then perfected by Itosu, which make it a part of the curricula of Shuri-derived schools such as Shotokan. Its origin is obscure with no tradition beyond Itosu.

The three ‘temple’ kata have been associated with each other for over a hundred years and have an obvious common origin or inspiration.
