For students that are on the Advance /Elite packages (2 classes per week) there is the dedicated KATA class that concentrates solely on your grade and kata.

Each class has 2-3 instructors to help you get your kata its best, but you will still need to practice at home too.

We are extremely awesome instructors, but you still need to do some work yourself.

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.
