Seitei Kata

The Shoden and Chuden Seitei Kata are the standardized forms of the Zen Nihon Batto Do Renmei.

Shoden Seitei Kata 初伝 制定形

The Shoden Seitei Kata are the beginning kata of the Zen Nihon Batto Do Renmei.  They are oriented towards teaching basic techniques and are used for tameshigiri.  These are the first kata most students learn, but the fundamentals they represent are good for all students.  If you feel you have mastered these kata, then your attitude has put you at the limit of what you can learn.  Face each kata with the heart of a novice, and there will always be something to learn.
