There are eight empty-hand kata or forms in Uechi Ryu; the longest called Sanseiryu, has 36 steps. Only Sanchin, Seisan, and Sanseiryu come from Pongainoon; the others were added to the style by Kanei Uechi. Many of the names of the newer kata were formed from the names of prominent figures in the art (e.g. Kanshiwa is derived from Kanbun and Sushiwa).
