Why is everyone afraid to make a new kata with ground fighting?
Not the argument here at all. I could care less if someone were to create a new, groundfighting kata. Or if they find groundfighting applications in classical, stand-up kata.
But, trying to force-fit historical connections where there do not seem to be any is deceptive.
