The next 100 Kata Challenge event will be on October 25th 2019 – “100 Kata for Karate Day”

This international martial arts event led from Okinawa, the home of kobudo and karate consists of performing 100 kata in sequence. Participants are free to choose a preferred kata, and progress at their own pace. Participation is open to all ages and levels. Even if you are not sure you can complete 100 repetitions we warmly encourage you to take on the next challenge event and do your best. The only way you can fail is by not taking part!

This event is FREE to enter and we ask that participating dojo and groups around the world open participation to everyone at their locations. The 100 Kata Challenge event is an ideal opportunity for experienced practitioners and those with an interest in taking up traditional karate and kobudo practice to watch and try out kata practice. There is simply no better way to start learning your first kata than doing 100 repetitions of that kata!
