List of Goju-Ryu Karate Katas with Instructions

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.

If you are looking for the bunkai of these katas, please visit the main Goju-Ryu Bunkai section. You might also like to visit our community section where visitors discuss whether kata is useful or useless.

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