IMO I dont believe in Kata or forms. In kata and forms there is too much memorization and thinking of set patterns and routines that lead no where but in actual fighting combat you dont think or follow set patterns you REACT to the unexpected. Or like Bruce Lee says dont think FEEL.lol




Kata does exist.




Yeah I know it does exist just like chi but what I meant is that I dont believe in training in it as it has little to no benefits in actual combat.

Have you trained a Kata? with some of the correct kata application?
So a kick to the thigh practiced as an application in kata that would do as much damage as a well placed kick to the thigh found in MMA's isnt combat?
Do you know which kata it is in?


Chi isnt I believe part of the discussion?
