ADVANCED (Nakayama)

In Masatoshi Nakayama’s Best Karate series, which is by far one of the most comprehensive resources in the JKA Shotokan kata study, these nine kata were labeled as “Advanced kata”. A greater agility is required in these kata, as their movements are comparatively extravagant, and requires jumping, falling, high kicks etc. These kata arise from the five animals of Shaolin kung fu and have been borrowed from other styles of karate. These kata are said to be tournament favorites and bring more excitement and fun for both the performer as well as the spectator.
