BASIC KATA
We use 16 basic katas plus one special kata for brown and black belts. All basic katas have the same number of steps and the moves are in the same directions. Only the techniques used change and become gradually more difficult. White belts have to learn the first four basic katas. Basic kata number one is described in detail below. Basic kata number one uses the forward stance (zenkutsu dachi) and the downward block (harai uke). For details on stances and techniques please refer to the descriptions above. Basic kata number two uses a middle block (yoko uke) instead of the downward block. Basic kata number three uses the upper block (jodan uke) and basic kata number four uses again the downward block (harai uke) but add a kick before each step.
