Shitei Kata Videos

O.K - not technically shitei kata, but these four kata below are required for nikyu (second kyu) gradings onwards under the current USKU grading syllabus. 

A student must be proficient at all four kata as they develop their technical knowledge and execution of them building up to shodan grading.  Sometimes referred to as Shitei kata (although technically not the same four under Shotokan) they are an extension of the skills mastered over the years of learning Heian kata.
