Shotokan Kata Exercises

Many moves of a Kata only show up ones over every body side. Therefore one does not get to exercise them enough and we show lack of training in these techniques.

 Therefore we suggest with these samples possible ways to exercise these techniques in a Kihon way. Feel free to take any more moves from the Kata and exercise it in a similar Kihon way. However, we have limited it to just one to two sequences per Kata. Feel free to create your own and as many as you feel like.
