Please specify the name of kata in the email with your full name and your grade (belt colour).

Kata videos will help you to review what you learn in the class and learn new katas for your next grading.

If you search 'Shito-Ryu Kata' on YouTube, you will find "Shito-kai kata" rather than "Seito Shito-ryu kata".

Note: Our Shito-ryu is 'Seito Shito-ryu', the style that founded by Shito-ryu founder, Kenwa Mabuni, and succeeded by his son, Kenzo Mabuni. Please do not learn details from other 'Shito-ryu' kata videos as they are most likely different.
