List of Shotokan Karate Katas with Instructions & Videos

These video and written step-by-step instructions will help you to learn the Shotokan Karate katas and prepare you for your next Karate belt test. Click on each kata below in order to find detailed instructions. Moreover, to master these Shotokan Karate katas, you will have to learn basic Shotokan stances, Karate kicks, Karate blocks, Karate punches, etc. However, if in doubt, check with your Sensei/Instructor regarding your required Karate kata movements as some Shotokan Karate schools use slightly different kata formats.
