Exactly what is it about Cord's position you disagree with? You have already stated that you only train kata underwater for it's effects on breathing, or are you now going to say you believe it effects speed and power as well? Are you going to provide anything to support your position? Are you at least going to state your position?

You don't dictate who discusses anything here. Obviously no one cares about your little blog as your self promotion has received little response. If you have a problem with people disagreeing with you here then say good bye.
Enjoy life while you can, you never know when things will change.
