The Keys to Understanding Kata

At the foot of this post you’ll find the latest Iain podcast! This podcast is just over 18 minutes long and covers the fundamental keys needed to understanding how kata should be applied. It is knowledge of these keys that will enable the karateka to understand the “language of kata” and hence understand what the physical moments of the various kata represent.

The podcast can be listened to online using this blog’s built in player (just click “Play Now” or the grey play icon). You can also download the podcast to listen to later on your computer or MP3 player by right clicking “Download”, then click “Save as”, and then choose the location you’d like to save the podcast to.

I hope you enjoy the podcast and find it useful.

All the best,
