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 (because many Shotokan schools test their students on these kata meanings).

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. You might also like to visit the wiki community's Kata section that contains conversations such as Kata useful or useless, Kata improvement techniques, Positives & negatives of kata, etc.
