Beats in line with the traditional Shōtōkan Kata

The Kata Beats are suitable ...
Especially for Kata competitors: Thanks to the music, the individual Kata athletes of a team can practice their Kata in the same rhythm more intensively, without having to practice as a group. After that, practicing together becomes more effective.

Kata Beats is the first music ever composed to the rhythm of a Shōtōkan Kata.

Modern sounds and melodies accompany musically rhythmic focal points (Kime points), but also slow movements of a traditional Shōtōkan Kata. Thus, the Kata Beats are the successful combination of Karate and music.

Kata Beats brings variety into the daily training routine. It is ideal for children or adults to learn the rhythm of a Kata. In addition, a Kata performed with Kata Beats enhances any demonstration.
