The Uchinadi 沖縄手 curriculum from the 9th kyu to the 5th dan of the ATKO summarized here is for the most part common to the Shorin-ryu of the Matsubatashi school 松林流 although some kata 型 come from other Okinawan schools. Further exercises to be done individually such as the hojo undo 補助運動 or in pairs such as kakie 鉤 and irikumi 入組 or both as tai kitae 体鍛え are described in detail in the Syllabus. The curriculum from the 6th dan provides insights into the bare-hand kata, exercises and forms with various weapons of the Okinawan Kobudo 古武道 and is reserved only for ATKO members.
