List of Isshin-Ryu Karate Kata with Videos

This page will help you to learn the basic katas for Isshin-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. There are a variety of Isshin-Ryu katas including "empty hand" kata (no martial arts weapons involved) and weapons kata that use either the Bo staff, Sai or Tonfa.

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

Reasons for Kata

Many Karate 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.
