Age-uke section of the kata. There are a number of differences between "styles" in this section, primarily due to the different angles of attack. Shorin-ryu variant the gedan-barai and age-uke are at 90° to the opponent, Shotokan the gedan-barai is usually at 90° and the age-uke at 45°, Wado-ryu and Shito-ryu both gedan-barai and age-uke are performed at 45°. This would seem to be to target more to the front of the opponent rather than the side. i.e. make it easier to hit his neck.
