i used to study shotokan karate (i was a brown belt when i switched martial arts... a pretty dumb thing to do, so close to black) but i stopped and began kickboxing and thai boxing.
recently ive been trying to do some of my katas as im thinking of starting again... and i cant remember hardly any of them, i was wondering if anyone new any websites with kata videos on, as to refresh my memory

a fellow Brit !

I came back to karate as well mate and some good advice is to focus on one or two of the basic forms, get back into a good club and go from there.

Theres nothing wrong with having a begineers mind, and remember its the quality and depth of understanding/application that counts not the number of kata you do.

gary, you might also look around your area to see if there are instructors in other traditional Okinawan Karate. My experience has been that the katas aren't exactly the same, but so similar that you would be able to make the adjustments without much problem, and you might even be able to finish your black belt in a slightly different style fairly quickly.

In the search for the ever elusive half-decent kata videos I've found three good sets. One is here: The other two are listed under 'Karate' on the links page at to save me posting them here.
