Join us for the upcoming 100 Kata for Karate Day event in Okinawa Oct 25th 2015! Everyone is welcome, beginners and all styles.
A kata is a pattern of karate techniques performed in a set sequence. Its a basic part of traditional karate practice. Today karate, which originated in Okinawa, is popular around the world and practiced by millions. You might say it is Okinawa’s most successful export! So its fitting that we take on a special challenge to celebrate karate in Okinawa.
We will be attempting to set a new Guinness World Record for ” Most people performing a kata “, by gathering 800+ people together at Zakimi Castle in Yomitan Village on this special day. The record currently stands at 809.
I know we can beat that and bring the title to Okinawa, the birthplace of Karate!
The 100 Kata for Karate Day is now truly a worldwide event. Already we have participants from 20+ countries signed up for Oct 25th 2015. And I know we will see many many more take on the challenge. So please spread the word, invite your friends and join us on another historical day! Let’s make it a day to remember.
