The three Naifanchi kata, also known as Naihanchi, belong to the Itosu lineage, and were taught to Zenpō Sensei by Nakama Chōzō, a student of Chibana Chōsin. They are often associated with Motobu Chōki.

The Naifanchi are notable for their embusen (line of travel), which is simply a straight lateral line.
