The Ketan is a series of movements that one can use to practice proper form as a form of training for fighting. It can be compared to tai chi or any martial arts kata. Ketan is an Adem word. While it is not explicitly stated that this is true, it can be inferred that different fighting paths among the Adem may use different Ketans.

In TWMF, Kvothe first learns the Ketan from Tempi

At the end of Wise Man's Fear, Kvothe begins practicing the Ketan again.
