Kata is the basic and also oldest exercise form in Karate. Not even a hundred years have passed, since Funakoshi Sensei began to spread Karate Do in Japan and in the whole world.
Over centuries Karate techniques were practiced secretly. The old masters developed sequences of motion used in Karate combinations, which simulated a fight, but required at the same time absolute perfection and upright attitude of the mind of Kata.
In 1948 at the Waseda University, under the direction of Funakoshi Sensei, a meeting of Karate students of the Universities of Waseda, Keio and Takushoku took place. The goal was to find a common basis and interpretation of the different Kata.
