The Kata

The Kata series: 


These are the true back bone of Shaolin Kempo.The first four of these forms were created by Sijo Victor ‘Sonny’ Gascon in his school in Burbank California directly after (or possibly before) his separation from Kajukenbo. Kata 5 and Kata 6 were created by SGM S. George Pesare in Olneyville Rhode Island in the early to mid 1960’s. SGM Pesare also created a Kata 7 which he still teaches, but was adapted by Professor Nick Cerio into ‘Circle of the Panther’, and the further adapted by GM Fred Villari into ‘Swift Tigers’.
