Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This is the shotokan karate kata reference you have been looking for!
◆ Each count in each kata has been carefully photographed with respect to the detail important to every karate-ka, from the beginner to the most skilled.
◆ Any technique can be rotated, as each count in each kata has been photographed from 4 different angles (north, south, east, west).
◆ More advanced movements are illustrated with additional pictures in landscape-mode, making the transition to the following count more understandable.
◆ Enbusen is shown together with the count, and can be enlarged or removed.
◆ Any count can be looked up in an instance with the thumbnail-mode.
◆ The katas are performed by highly skilled godan and rokudan (5th and 6th dan black belt) karate-ka.
◆ Every count is named according to the official and latest terminology, including technique and stance.
INCLUDED IN THE LITE EDITION:
1. Heian Shodan
6. Tekki Shodan
BUY THE FULL EDITION TO GET:
All the first 15 katas - plus additional katas available for in-app purchase.
This is the real thing. You will be able to look up any count anywhere, just as in the traditonal kata books, view it from any angle and get on with your training.
The app is made by karate-ka for karate-ka. You will find the most comprehensive, detailed and smart reference out there for your ongoing kata training.
This App is not intended for people not attending a karate-dojo; you will not find any instructions in the app on how to learn karate.
With future updates this app will go with you all the way to Gojushiho Dai.
Great tool for all students who want to either work on getting the basics of kata or on refining their form. It's helpful to move illustrations back and forth to learn transitions or check out details but you can also rotate the view to check stance, for example. It's the best ipad reference I've seen; is way easier to use than many of the print references out there and makes a good companion to the foundational texts like Funakoshi Sensi's "Karate-do kyohan". Good stuff, Os!
The paid app is WAY too expensive. Make it less than $5 and I will buy it OR make each kata a $1 in app purchase. Please make it cheaper.
