List of Uechi-Ryu Karate Kata with Videos

This page will help you to learn the basic katas for Uechi-Ryu Karate so you can get ready for your next belt test. However, if you have any questions about a particular kata movement, please check with your instructor because kata instructions and the order of katas can vary by school and organization.

There are eight "empty hand" (non-weapon) katas practiced in Uechi-Ryu Karate. Many Uechi-Ryu schools also practice weapons katas (i.e. Seijun No Bo Kata).

For the katas of other Karate styles (i.e. Shotokan katas), please visit the main Katas & Forms section.
