Kūsankū (クーサンクー、公相君) There are two versions of the kata: Kūsankū-shō and Kūsankū-dai. The Okinawan name Kūsankū (クーサンクー) refers to a person by the name of Kūsankū, a Chinese diplomat from Fukien who traveled to Okinawa to teach this system of fighting. In Japanese systems of karate, the kata is known as Kankū (translated as gazing heavenward, viewing the sky, or contemplating the sky) ever since it was renamed in the 1930s by Funakoshi Gichin.
