Step By Step of foot positions for IL Jang

When achieving Yellow Belt, your karate gets a little more challenging.
To grade for your Orange Belt, you now have to learn a Kata which is a series of moves in a pattern that have been passed down the generations of instructors.
SESMA provide many ways to help you learn the pattern and sequence of moves.
We have Kata Week at the studio, Kata Friday once a month, Videos below showing you the moves, print out booklets and also step by step footprint layouts and a short video of each step including the turns.

For a print out of the layouts, please follow the link.
