Reviewed by Philip Chan

Learn new karate techniques or improve your current skills with the KYOKUSHIN KARATE TO WIN EN app from developer UZCN. With clear and detailed video footage of different maneuvers, you will have your moves perfected in no time. This app is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices. It also requires at least iOS 3.0.


The general premise and purpose of this app is to teach and enhance the knowledge of the user on karate techniques and move methods. Since this is an instructional app, this is geared toward those who have an expressed interest in karate or who participate in karate and would like to improve. Loaded with fourteen detailed video clips, the user can instantly gain a better idea of what karate is like and should be. Not only does this app provide a third person point of view of actual karate in action, but it also allows the user to see common errors or troublesome moves that they can avoid.

The idea is simple. Learn basic and popular karate techniques by viewing any of the instructional video clips. Each video is self titled for easier navigating, and with a simple of touch of the screen, the video loads and begins to play out. Each video features instruction and description captions and even slowed down motion play by play. The great thing about these being in video format is that you can pause the video anytime or rewind a bit to replay the same scenario over again to get a better picture of the move. Another plus is that the majority of these videos are only a minute long in duration appeasing those who have a shorter attention span. The video quality is clear and non-distractive. The colors are basic and easy on the eyes, nothing bright or in your face.


Although $4.99 is not really considered to be “cheap”, for the amount of time and effort put in to creating this app makes it well worth it. Each video footage is distinct and created with a primary function and a purpose. The videos are easy to understand and relate to, and can also offer as an entertainment to those who may not participate in karate, but enjoy watching it take place. Karate may not be easy to learn for everyone, but this app sure makes it helpful for those who do want to learn it, and learn it well.

KYOKUSHIN KARATE TO WIN EN iPhone app requires iOS 3.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
