Once a Student has attained the rank of Shodan and mastered the basics of karate, their martial arts career begins, thus the term (Shodan).  After this, they begin their training of Goju Ryu Kata and curricula.  Goju Ryu is the transitioning sister style of the ShinPu-Ren.  Students are not limited to what they may learn and achieve after black belt. The instructors will give a Black Belt Student 3 kata every two years.  This is the service time requirement between each degree after Shodan.  Any other forms the student wishes to learn is encouraged through self-exploration and by this time, the students already has experience in creating kata (Juju undo), it's basic application (bunkai) and beyond the boundaries of its application (oyo bunkai/ goshindo.)
