What is iKATA KARATE project?

iKata Karate, Beginner & Pro versions, are educational tools aimed to help Karate students, professors, coaches, or judges and referees, to remind more easily a specific pattern in a comprehensive manner, while offering a significant resource and overview about the style Shotokan on a mobile support. You can bring and use iKata everywhere and without any connection required (i.e. in a dojo or on a trip).

A collection of detailed animations exclusively focused on the ESSENTIAL points :

The major advantage of the iKata resources is to faster improve the memorization effort and mental process involved for learning a Kata than any other individual method (i.e. videos, books, drawings), whatever the grade and/or level of expertise. With the associated tools, the learning effort will be more efficient to help any karateka intuitively remember the form of a Kata.

Info on our App price policy: iKata Karate series (BASIC, BEGINNER and PRO versions) as well as other sport publications accepted by WHI sport education are determined as follow: ~€1.0 (or ~$1.5) per illustration/form (i.e. one Kata). This price policy is very competitive as compared to any other illustrated tools (numeric or printed) of quality that are aimed to serve instructors or can be used as a reference in sport education. Unfortunately publications covering minor sports disciplines remain marginal niche markets with very limited returns and the costs are by far not compensating for the real time needed by accredited sport professionals or experienced coaches as reviewers to work on the development of comprehensive and accurate illustrations regarding sport technical content. Therefore we would like to take this opportunity to warmly thank all of you for your really kind words and very positive support received since the first day of launch of our apps series tailored on the sport of Karate.

Your valuable inputs help us make that our handy technical publications continue to remain trustful and comprehensive professional references for instructors in sport education.
