This international martial arts event led from Okinawa, the home of kobudo and karate, consists of performing 100 kata in sequence.
The 100 Kata Challenges are a celebration of our passion for martial arts and our connection with Okinawa, the birthplace of karate. Every year more and more people around the world take up the challenge and join our worldwide community of karate and kobudo fans.
The rules of the event are simple. Participants are free to choose a preferred kata, and progress at their own pace. Participation is open to all ages and levels. Even if you are not sure you can complete 100 repetitions we warmly encourage you to take on the next challenge event and do your best. The only way you can fail is by not taking part!
As always we invite everyone to take part from wherever you are - at home, your dojo, an outside location or wherever. Please take some pictures and video and share with us on our Facebook page.
