Instructions for Shudokan Kata - Pinan Yondan

This page provides details on Pinan Yondan (or Yandan), a Shudokan kata. For other Shudokan katas (i.e. Kyoku), please visit the main Shudokan Katas section.

Pinan Yondan is used by many different Karate styles as a low level kata but each one is a little different. Please check with your instructor for the techniques required by your school in order to properly execute this kata. Since the Pinan katas for Shudokan and Shorin-Ryu are very similar, we are adding a Shorin-Ryu katas video below in order to help with your training.

If you need help with other Karate techniques (i.e. stances, kicks and strikes), please visit the main Karate section. For katas from other Karate styles (i.e. Shotokan), please visit the main Kata section.
