List of Goju-Ryu Karate Katas with Instructions & Videos

This page will help you to learn the basic katas for Goju-Ryu Karate so you can get ready for your next belt test. However, if you have any questions about a particular kata movement, please check with your instructor because kata instructions and the order of katas can vary by school and organization. Many Goju-Ryu Karate schools use these katas in order to help students practice certain moves (i.e. kicking techniques, self-defense techniques and various strikes) as well as for improving a student's physical conditioning, muscle memory, focus/concentration, balance, etc.

To master these katas, you will also have to learn basic Goju-Ryu stances, Karate kicks, Karate blocks, Karate punches, etc. If you are looking for the bunkai of these katas, please visit the main Goju-Ryu Bunkai section.

For the katas of other Karate styles (i.e. Shotokan katas), please visit the main Katas & Forms section.
