Once a Student has attained the rank of Shodan and mastered the basics of karate, their martial arts journey begins, thus the term (Shodan).  After this, they begin their training of Goju Ryu Kata and curricula.  Goju Ryu is a great bridging style for ShinPu-Ren yudancha.  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 the required time served between each degree after Shodan.  Varying degrees after third dan.  Any other forms the student wishes to learn is encouraged through exploration and by this time, the students already have experience in creating kata (Juju undo), it's basic application (bunkai) and beyond the boundaries of its application (oyo bunkai/ goshindo.)
