Junro Kata

The Junro kata were created by the late Asai Sensei, founder of the JKS and considered one of the greatest shotokan practitioners who ever lived. He believed that there were gaps in the original 26 Shotokan kata and so filled those gaps with the Junro series, amongst other kata. The Junro series also helps to prepare the student for the more advanced shotokan kata that follow the earlier ones. The Junro kata are assessed at Shodan level and beyond.
