How far are into the Japanese language do u plan on studying? I mean, memorizing the kana is good, but I think it is good to be able to write it as well. See my post here on how I learned the Kana: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-796029/what-are-the-best-ways-to-learn-japanese?fpid=42616991 If u want to be able to write the Kana as well, I think it would be a good idea to learn the proper stroke order as well. Many online sites can help with that, or in the Remembering the Kana book I mentioned in the aforementioned link.

I strongly recommend writing each symbol with attention to stroke order repeatedly. Once you feel you've got a solid grasp on even one, start looking at Japanese writing and see if you can find and recognize it consistently. If you can, you've got that one down and it's time to move on to another symbol. Go on as such until you've got them all.

It's basically the exact same process you used to learn to read and write in the English language, I expect.
