When practicing Katas remember it’s not just about learning the moves, but it is just as  important  to perfect the moves.  The beginning forms are as important as the more advanced and they will allow you to continue to work on and improve your basics, which are the foundation of a good martial artist!

Practice slow and practice fast!

Work on intensity and power as you create a story through your kata!

Any questions, please be sure to ask Sensei!
