KATA (FORM)

"The core of Karate"

The true meaning and spirit of Karate are embedded in the kata, and only by constant practice of kata can we come to understand them.

The primary purpose of kata is to teach one how to fight. Deciphering the kata is Bunkai, which enables the student to take moves out of the kata, interpret them and use them as a fighting technique. Often these techniques are not obvious and require thorough analysis, which makes practicing bunkai crucial to one's training in Karate.
