  As a mean to identify standard kata and to study about kata tolerance for the First international tournament of 2018, the executive committee has recorded a total of 133 video of karate kata, 28 bōjutsu kata and 17 of saijutsu kata.

  They illustrate the list of kata officially chosen for this August competition.

  While there are of course many more kata and versions practiced in Okinawa, it is a great way to study Okinawa karate and for first time visitors to Okinawa, to research which system appeals to one best.
