Okay, I've been through this kind of topic two other times, but I've another way to put it . . .
In training, how many of you practice the "beginner's" kata, such as Pinan?
For those that do, a question: What benefits do you feel this type of set gives you as a martial artist?
For those that don't: Why?
I've been through styles which teach kata similar to the Pinan and Passai, and am currently in Isshinry, which teaches in a fashion that's a lot easier for me.
