List of Karate Kata (Shotokan, Kyokushin, Goju-Ryu, etc.)

This section provides details on the kata used by most major Karate styles including Shotokan, Kyokushin, Goju-Ryu, Shito-Ryu and many others. The pages below include videos and/or written kata instructions for a huge number of different Karate katas. Visit each section to see all of the kata associated with that Karate style (i.e. Shotokan Karate Katas).

Kata is a formalized step-by-step system usually incorporating a variety of kicks and strikes against an imaginary opponent. Some kata also use martial arts weapons as part of the routine. Kata is used extensively by most traditional Karate styles because it helps students to practice certain moves (i.e. kicking techniques, self-defense techniques and various strikes) when they are without a training partner. Kata also helps to improve a student's physical conditioning, muscle memory, focus/concentration, balance, etc. Some Karate styles use a relatively low number of kata whereas other styles use a huge variety of kata as part of their training (i.e. Shito-Ryu Katas).

For the "kata" of other martial arts (i.e. Taekwondo forms), please visit the main Kata, Forms & Patterns section. You might also like to visit the wiki community's Kata section that contains conversations such as Kata useful or useless, Kata improvement techniques, Positives & negatives of kata, etc.
