Individual Kumite: One member spars against an opponent.
Team Kata: Three members simultaneously perform a set of official, pre-set sequences of karate techniques, in a synchronized manner.
Team Bunkai: Three members demonstrate the application of a Kata (an official, pre-set series of karate techniques) by attacking and defending against each other based on the Kata techniques.
Team Enbu: Three members demonstrate the techniques of Karate based on their own interpretation and choreography, in a series of creative offensive and defensive scenarios.
Team Kumite: A team of three members each takes a turn sparring against opponents in a "best out of three" match.
