Thanks for all the replies!
We are the only ones in our organization so that's not a concern.
When addressing the groundfighting the idea is to be able to defend yourself there against a good grappler or wrestler if you are taken down,but recovering upright as soon as possible not staying there.
The reason of just a few kata is as thought. There are so many things in kata one can spend many years on just one.Why learn/teach so many? Other than just to keep them alive?
The kata are the taikyoku series, empi, sanchin, seiunchin, sanseryu,bo kata,and tensho taught in that order.
I am partucularly set on learning naihanchi,but it won't be a part of the curriculum for a long while.
