Kake Kata forms one of the six basic or 'Kihon' Kata's. Kihon Means Basic, or Fundamental and refers to the basic techniques used to make up the Kihon Kata. Broseley Goju Kan practice Kihon Kata continuously at all grades to ensure sound basics and good techniques are maintained as the foundation throughout the club. There are six Kihon Kata practiced by Broseley Goju Kan. In addition to the execution of effective techniques, the practice of Kihon Kata allows the Karateka to focus on and practice the correct stances, posture and breathing.

Kihon Kata follow a similar pattern of footwork (except Kihon San) making for easier introduction to the lower grades.

The fourth Kihon Kata taught at Broseley Goju Kan is Kake Kata. This Kata is performed much like Kihon Ni but ends a move early compared to Kihon Ni (no front left diagonal). The kata is made up primarily of changes of direction encompassing Kake uke (open hand hooking block) into Sanchin Dachi. Following each Kake uke a kekomi mae geri (front thrusting kick) is performed (into Zenkutsu Dachi) followed by an Age empi (Rising elbow strike).

Broseley Goju Kan teach Kake Kata around 8th Kyu depending on the abilities of the Karateka
