Kihon Kata

Kihon (also known as Taikyoku Shodan) is practiced from complete beginner (white belt) upwards, and is required for the first grading from white belt to blue belt (first 8 moves only) and for the subsequent grading from blue belt to orange belt (all moves). Tiny Tigers require the first four moves for white belt to white/blue, first eight moves to count for white/blue  to white/orange, first eight moves (no count) for white/orange to white/red and all twenty moves for white/Red to white/yellow.
