    1. Okinawan Kenpo is generally credited with the origins of kata as taught by most styles of Karate. In learning the different kata, the student is taught the various self defense techniques and applications. Intermediate and advanced students would begin training in the Kobudo (weapons) system once the basic material was mastered.
