Shotokan Karate Katas with Videos & Instructions

This page provides instructions for Shotokan katas and will prepare you for your next Karate belt test. You will find detailed written and/or video instructions for a wide variety of Shotokan kata and kihon. 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. 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. In addition, students should also know the meaning of Shotokan Karate kata as many Shotokan schools will make knowledge of these meanings part of some belt test.

If you are looking for the bunkai of these katas, please visit the main Shotokan Bunkai section. For the katas of other Karate styles (i.e. Wado-Ryu katas or Kyokushin katas), please visit the main Katas & Forms section. For more information on kata, please visit the wiki community discussions such as Is kata useful or useless?, etc.
