(cat=sand kicking)




I think this whole idea of kicking sand is kitty poo. Have you ever tried this at a beach? It's actually rather hard to kick sand and get it to go where you want it to go. Also when I was stationed at Camp Butler on Okinawa I don't really remember seeing much sand except at the beach. Personally I think the Nekoashi Dachi is just used as a prep for easier kicking. IMHO sometimes people look to deep into kata looking for application, then all of a sudden you get people flinging sand and ripping skin with their fingers. LOL

How about blocking being used as checking or jamming when they make a move or get ready to move on you? Then short strikes, elbows, grappling, pressure points, etc.
