List of Wado-Ryu Karate Katas

These videos and/or written instructions will help you to learn the basic katas for Wado-Ryu Karate so you can get ready for your next belt test. However, if you have any questions about a particular kata movement or sequence, please check with your Karate instructor because kata instructions can vary by school and organization. In order to understand the Wado-Ryu Karate kata, you need to know that "Wado" means the way of peace and harmony and "Ryu" means school. This basic philosophy stands behind the movements in the various Wado-Ryu Karate kata.

You should also read our section on Is Kata Useful or Useless? It discusses the pros & cons of kata. For the katas of other Karate styles (i.e. Shotokan katas), please visit the main Katas & Forms section.

Reasons for Kata

Many Karate schools use kata in order to help students practice certain moves (i.e. kicking techniques, self-defense techniques and various strikes). In addition, kata is used to improve a student's physical conditioning, muscle memory, focus/concentration, balance, etc.

You might also like to visit the wiki community's Forms, Kata & Patterns section that contains conversations such as Is Kata useful or useless?, Positives & negatives of forms & patterns, etc. In this section, wiki community members discuss forms, pattern & kata techniques, tips, improvements, etc.
