Kata

Kata are small, structured practice routines or protocols. Through physical practice their pattern becomes second nature, done with little conscious attention. Kata are typically for learning fundamentals to build on. The goal is not the Kata themselves, which get used less as you grow more proficient, but the habits of thinking and acting that practicing them leaves behind.
