25 Shoto-Kan Kata

What is Kata? A kata is a series of defensive and offensive moves against imaginary attacks from different directions. Also, a kata includes many moves for physical exercise and for connection to subsequent moves rather than for actual application. Why practice Kata? Because of the tension of fighting, it is difficult to maintain tranquility in order to examine and understand the details of techniques during sparring. Therefore, Kata are made for studying the details of the external movements. Why this Kata book? 1. All movements are illustrated by drawing insted of photographs. Therefore, you can understand the movements more clearly. 2. The drawings employ a three dimensional perspective and use compass points for easy orientation. 3. To complete the learning of each Kata, the rhythm and timing of movements are clearly described. 4. For clear understanding, step by step explanations accompany each diagram. Note: Instructions provided in English, Spanish and Japanese.
