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.

Wiki Updates & News

  • 04/20/15 - We are reopening the Wiki Message Board so that members can discuss techniques, etc. However, only members can view this message board. So if you want to participate, please become a wiki member. You can even win prizes for posting lots of interesting/useful comments on this forum.
  • 04/15/15 - Andy has been on a tear over the past few days. He has added a ton of great information to a wide variety of martial arts weapons-related pages such as the Tanto, Nunchakujutsu, Wakazashi, Bokken, etc.
  • 04/09/15 - Our thanks to Chris who has been adding much needed anatomical data (i.e. areas to strike or protect on the human body) to a variety of pages such as Anatomy and Bones & the Martial Arts.
  • 04/09/15 - We have added the four finger poke and two finger poke to the main punches & hand strikes section. Of course, we had to add a Three Stooges clip to the two fingers page. :)
  • 04/08/15 - Nathan has started to add some instructions for Bruce Lee's famous Wing Chun One Inch Punch. If there are any Wing Chun students who would like to help, we would love to get your perspective & tips on this punch.
  • 04/08/15 - We are still working on the Marine Corps Martial Arts section. We hope to have all of the instructions for the tan belt techniques (i.e. Leg Sweep) finished in the next week or two.
  • 04/07/15 - Since people liked last month's addition of sections focused on the foreign language names of body parts (i.e. Karate - Names of Body Parts), we are adding a few more similar pages… such as Kung Fu - Names of Body Parts (Mandarin). We hope to get up a Cantonese version by this weekend. If you are a master of the Chinese language, please feel free to add to these pages.
