List of Kyokushin Karate Katas with Videos & Instructions

These videos and written instructions will help you to learn the Kyokushin Karate katas and to prepare for your next Karate belt test. To master these Kyokushin Karate katas, you will also have to learn basic Kyokushin stances.

Please check with your Sensei/Instructor regarding your required kata movements as some Kyokushin Karate schools use slightly different kata formats. In addition, a number of Kyokushin Karate schools have their kata in different orders/sequences based on the preference of the school's Sensei and system. For the katas of other Karate styles (i.e. Shotokan katas), please visit the main Katas & Forms section.

Books on Kyokushin Kata

Kyokushin Karate Katas - includes videos and/or written instructions

Kyokushin Ura Katas - Ura katas are very similar to the same-named non-ura Kyokushin katas (i.e. Taikyoku Sono Ichi). However, ura katas contain spins when turning.

Kyokushin Bo Katas - These katas use a Bo staff.

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.
