Basic Forms

The following videos show kihon waza (basic techniques) and kata forms (pre-decided movements) performed by different teachers. Most of these films were produced to aid exam preparation. In our dojo, techniques may be taught a little differently, but still those videos are a good starting point.

The table is structured like our examination sheet for easier reference. Find more information on our grading syllabus in the download area.

Some techniques are also known under different names. In the table, the names used in our dojo come first, the synonyms used elsewhere are added in brackets.

The table is under constant revision (see revision date below). The videos listed below are from different online resources which are all publicly accessible.*
