About This Item

Kata is the basic and also oldest exercise form in Karate. Not even a hundred years have passed, since Funakoshi Sensei began to spread Karate Do in Japan and in the whole world.

Over centuries Karate techniques were practiced secretly. The old masters developed sequences of motion used in Karate combinations, which simulated a fight, but required at the same time absolute perfection and upright attitude of the mind of Kata.

In 1948 at the Waseda University, under the direction of Funakoshi Sensei, a meeting of Karate students of the Universities of Waseda, Keio and Takushoku took place. The goal was to find a common basis and interpretation of the different Kata.

In order to be able to implement a Kata correctly, you must realize its meaning.
- Exact knowledge of the expiration of a Kata and unconditional concentration.
- Accurate execution of the individual successive techniques, as well as correct body attitude.
- KIME means tension, speed and correct breathing techniques. Exactly at the demanded and correct time.
- The Kata should not be implemented calmly and over-hasty. Correct change of tension and relaxation, timing and rhythm.
