List of Shotokan Karate Katas with Instructions & Videos
However, if in doubt, check with your Sensei/Instructor regarding your required kata movements as some Shotokan Karate schools use slightly different kata formats. In addition, after the first eight katas, many Shotokan Karate schools have their kata in different orders/sequences based on the preference of the school's Sensei.
Katas are used in Karate in order to practice certain techniques (i.e. kicking combinations) as well as for conditioning purposes, muscle memory, focus/concentration, etc. For other Karate katas, please visit the main Martial Arts Kata section.
