List of Shito-Ryu Karate Katas with Videos

This page provides videos and/or written instructions for the katas used in Shito-Ryu Karate (i.e. Pinan Shodan, Naifanchin Shodan, Juroku, etc.). 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. Shito-Ryu is famous for having the most katas in Karate.

If you are looking for the katas for Hayashi-Ha Shito-Ryu Karate, please visit the International Hayashi-Ha Shito-Ryu katas section. For the katas of other Karate styles (i.e. Shotokan katas), please visit the main Katas & Forms section. For more information on kata, please visit the wiki community discussions such as Which kata would you retain?, Competition Kata - Improvement Techniques, Is kata useful or useless?, etc.
