It was the great Anko Itosu (1830 -1915) who developed the Pinan or Heian katas. Itosu was born in Yamagawa village, which was situated in the Shuri Region of Okinawa. Itosu began his study of Karate in 1846 under the legendary Sokon Matsumura (1809 - 1901). In Gichin Funakoshi's book, Karate-do Nyumon, master Itosu is described as being of average height with a huge chest that gave him 'the silhouette of a barrel.'
In 1905, Itosu was appointed as karate teacher to the Prefectural Dai Ichi Collage and the Prefectural teachers' training collage. In 1908 Itosu wrote a letter to the Prefectural education department that outlined his views on karate and asked that karate be introduced onto the curriculum of all Okinawan schools. Itosu was granted his wish and karate became part of the education of all Okinawan children. Itosu died in 1915, aged 85. This book deals with the legacy of Anko Itosu, the Pinan kata and their applications.
