Yufu Korekatsu served as a bushō during the Sengoku period. He was a retainer of the Ōtomo and Bekki clans. Korekatsu served as the head of the Yufu clan based at Yufuinyama Castle. His relationship to Yufu Shimōsa-no-kami Korekatsu (the father-in-law of Yufu Korenobu from a cadet family of the same surname) and Yufu Geki Korekatsu who appears in another historical account is unclear.
Korekatsu was the first tairō, or council elder in the family in Fujikita in Bungo Province.
In one account, he is referred to as Yufu Kaga-no-kami and was the twenty-fourth-generation descendant of Ōga Koremoto (a bushō from the middle Heian period) and the twelfth-generation grandson of the Yufu clan. He served as the hereditary lord of Yufuinyama-Umagadake Castle in Bungo.
In the era of either Korekatsu or his son, Yufu Ietsugu, the Yufu affiliated with the Bekki clan.
