"Life of Brian". love that movie...however the relevance to kata is nil and since the threads title is ironically, "Relevance of kata" ...I'd suggest getting back on track before something biblical happens to this thread.

you can see the relevance of kata when you chop it into small peices and disect,research and practice each piece separately. a decade of doing this and you might peel back 1 or 2 layers of how it relates to fighting and SD. I'm not done yet, so I don't know where it leads after that. Too dangerous? 1. what the heck does that mean? 2. don't worry about it, we are decades away from being too dangerous. 3. too dangerous as in too dangerous for being hijacked by a boxcutter?

Apologies, itr's a weakness. *Gav Stands* "Hi, my name is Gavin, and I'm a Monty Python Addict...." I getting counselling I swear!

If I can come up with a connection between The Life of Brian and the Relevance of Kata, can I carry on? Can I, huh? Sorry, I'll stop now! "And now for something completely different!"

It's better do have as many options too as many problems as possible. Juat coz you know how to kill someone, doesn't mean you have to. In the real world if god forbid someone was trying to kill you, but you'd only been taught applications that wasn't too dangerous (I'm using the term subjectively(sp)) you're been wishing you went to a club that wasn't quite so kind hearted. It's all about having the tools and also the intellegence of when to use them!

Application too dangerous? Depends.
I like to have 3 responses to every situation:
a) to gently swat someone screwing around
b) to cause enough pain to discourage
c) to maim or kill

Not many kata techniques can do all 3, but here's one from the very end of the Isshinryu Seisan kata. You shift back into cat stance while grabbing with both hands and performing a small mawashi uke (think of a quick turn of a small steering wheel).

a) Turn the foot you trapped to the opponent's "inside". This will turn his face away from you. You can either push him to the ground or kick up into the groin.
b) Turn the foot the other way. Severe knee trauma.
c) It's not the foot - it's the head you've got. Severe neck trauma.

When picking the level of response, choose wisely. Don't use a hammer instead of a flyswatter, or vice versa.
