List of Kendo Katas (1 through 10) with Videos & Instructions

Below are instructions and videos for the basic Kendo katas 1 through 10. These pages will help you to master the katas for your next test.

Katas are used in Kendo in order to help students practice certain moves (i.e. strikes) as well as for improving a student's physical conditioning, muscle memory, focus/concentration, balance, etc.

In kata competitions, students are judged on a variety of factors such as accuracy of the kata (i.e. Did they miss a step?), the power of their movements, timing/correct speed of their movements, balance, concentration, etc.
