List of Enshin Karate Kata with Videos
This section provides videos and/or instructions for the katas used in Enshin Kaikan (Enshin Karate). While Enshin Kaikan is famous for its full-contact style of fighting, it also uses kata. Nevertheless, Enshin kata are more focused on reinforcing the basics of Enshin versus a long sequence of self-defense techniques.
According to Matrix Martial Arts, Enshin's founder (Kancho Joko Ninomiya) "didn't bother with fancy names, instead the names are things like “shiro obi no kata”, or “ao obi no kata”, literally they are “white belt kata” and “blue belt kata” respectively. However, they include things that were heavily used in Kyokushin, but don’t exist in the original katas like Sanchin and Seisan, things like boxing style jab/cross combinations."
For katas from other Karate styles (i.e. Shotokan katas), please visit the main Katas & Forms section.
