List of Shotokan Karate Katas with Instructions - Sponsored by Wiki Kata & Forms

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. 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.

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 our community section where visitors discuss whether kata is useful or useless.
