List of Bo Staff Katas

These katas use a traditional martial arts weapon known as the Bo or Bo staff. Weapon katas or kubodu katas are used by many styles of Karate (such as Shorin-Ryu or Chito-Ryu). However, be aware that Bo katas with the same name can use different formats based on the style of Karate performing the kata. Given these potential differences, we have tried to list the Bo kata by the name of the Karate sub-style as well as the individual kata name.

Bo katas practice offensive and defensive staff techniques in a specified pattern of steps and movements. These Bo katas are often training tools for higher level Karate students. Beyond Bo katas, kubudo katas include Sai katas, Nunchaku katas, etc.

For non-weapon katas, visit the main Katas & Forms section.

Reasons for Kata

Many martial arts schools use kata in order to help students practice certain moves (i.e. kicking techniques, self-defense techniques and various strikes). In addition, kata is used to improve a student's physical conditioning, muscle memory, focus/concentration, balance, etc.

You might also like to visit the wiki community's Forms, Kata & Patterns section that contains conversations such as Is Kata useful or useless?, Positives & negatives of forms & patterns, etc. In this section, wiki community members discuss forms, pattern & kata techniques, tips, improvements, etc.
