With the coming year ahead, I want all students to be thinking about application and context for their techniques. Creatively looking at the basic and complex actions within kata with the thought of “what does this actually mean and how do I create power?”.
As we have already discovered this year, application of a technique can be quite different to the kata movement. It’s only by repetition of a sequence that the mysteries reveal themselves. I will encourage you to look and discover your own practical interpretations.
We are on a quest to improve our individual understanding of all the basics which we think we know!
