Added DiffLines:

* In TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}}, the background material for the [[AmazonBrigade Adepta Sororitas]] Seraphim indicates that they fight with the short ranged version of this trope. Fighting with their [[GunsAkimbo twinned pistols]] as easily as other warriors wield a blade, Seraphim use them to parry their opponents’ weapons before delivering a point-blank shot to a vital region.

* In VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}, Reaper's Ultimate, Death Blossom, essentially turns him into a blazing Gun Kata typhoon, blowing away pretty much any enemy player in his direct vicinity.

Compare and contrast to GunFu. Not related at all to the series ''Anime/UtaKata''. May serve as a pseudoscientific [[JustifiedTrope justification]] for the existence of graduates of the ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy.

'''[[ShortRangeLongRangeWeapon Short Range:]]''' Another form of Gun Kata depicted in ''Equilibrium'', though never explicitly named, involves dueling with a single opponent at a very close range, with both duelists wielding guns and trying to point them at each other and pull the trigger, while constantly knocking off the enemy's aim (since a fired shot cannot be blocked or parried as in unarmed combat and [[SwordFight fencing]], except under [[ParryingBullets exceptional circumstances]]). It is essentially the Wing Chun technique "Sticky Hands," with guns. Wimmer's commentary on the DVD notes that this different form is actually [[ThrowItIn the result]] of a recurring problem during filming; they ran out of time and money to do what they originally planned and would not explain the original idea, as he intended to use it in a later movie (it's possible the final fight in ''Ultraviolet'' is the result.) Both forms were reproduced in later works, especially in anime.

While the latter form is TruthInTelevision as this is entirely possible, it disobeys several gun safety rules, and a much safer approach for both parties at that range would be to physically attack the opponent's ''person'' to make him unstable instead of trying to grab at his gun. The former, however, completely ignores the possibility of a target firing from cover, which is the fact of most gun fights in real life.
