The 26 Shotokan Katas
Unfortunately, due to the huge demand for the kata videos posted on the site, we have had to restrict the availability as our bandwidth limit keeps being exceeded. As a result, only 5 videos will be available on a rotating basis every month.
Please select a kata from the menu above. The videos are part of the series - "All Kata of Karate, Japan Karate Association", produced by The Bureau of Technique, JKA. These kata video clips are for educational purposes only and are provided courtesy of the JKA.
To prevent Hot-linking, we have instituted password access to the kata pages. Please use the following to access the videos:
User Name: guest
If the video will still not play after you have entered the password, then please check that you have the latest flash plugin available from http://www.macromedia.com and that your browser and/or firewall permissions are set correctly.
