Shudokan Kata – Pinan Shodan
This page provides details on Shudokan kata – Pinan Shodan. For other Shudokan katas (i.e. Kyoku), please visit the main Shudokan Katas section.
Pinan Shodan 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 kata video below in order to help with your training.
For information on the katas from other Karate styles (i.e. Shotokan), please visit the main Kata section.
