Kitana kata

Kitana doing a kata

Kata (meaning "form") is a Japanese word describing detailed choreographed patterns of movements practiced either solo or in pairs. Kata are used in many traditional Japanese arts such as theater forms and schools of tea ceremony, but are most commonly known for the presence in the martial arts. Kata are used by most traditional Japanese and Okinawan martial arts, such as Aikido, Judo, Jujutsu, Kenpo and Karate. Other arts such as Tai Chi and Tae Kwon Do feature the same kind of training, but use the respective Chinese and Korean words instead.

In Mortal Kombat

Blaze, Kenshi, Frost, Quan Chi, and Kitana are the only ones in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance to perform a kata. However, every character in their Mortal Kombat: Armageddon's endings perform a kata.
