Kata Practice Guidelines

Learn about the do's and don'ts of good kata practice, as well as kata practice tools.

We'll cover the following

The do’s and don’ts of good kata practice include the following:


  • Practice often (daily would be best).
  • Use the Practice Calendar as a guide to managing kata practice while learning new katas.
  • Keep your practice sessions short, approximately 15 to 30 minutes.


  • Copy and paste the commands. As tempting as this may be, we’ll want to develop the “muscle memory” of executing the commands by hand, as we would in a real-world situation.
  • Write scripts to automate the commands (for the same reason we shouldn’t copy and paste).
