List of Shito-Ryu Karate Katas – Videos & Instructions

This page provides videos and/or written instructions for the katas used in Shito-Ryu Karate (i.e. Pinan ShodanNaifanchin ShodanJuroku, etc.). 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. Shito-Ryu is famous for having the most katas in Karate.
