Mike Baron Sensei and Grace Baron have been hard at work at their Vanilla Pod Studios and produced a series of Kata Videos to help students with their home kata study.
The first Kata video to be released in the series is Kata Heian Shodan and you can download the video right now; absolutely free of charge. Grace Baron is the current JKS Womens’ Kata Champ and a member or the English Karate Federation Elite Senior Kata Squad. Grace demonstrates the Kata very clearly and at a slow pace; making it super-easy for beginners to follow.
As you can see below – the Kata is shot from both the front and back so you’ll always be able to tell exactly what you should be doing with your arms and legs! They are so easy to follow and are just a few minutes long so with daily practise, you’ll soon be up to speed with the pattern of any Kata you choose to learn. Give’s us all something to do whilst we are waiting for the Corona to (cue your best Manchester accent) DO ONE!
