I'm sorry if I upset you so much I am not the best at expressing myself in English but I wasn't questioning history I was asking a question tyvm no need to spazz.

Not upset, just calling into question your claim that there is no history for "bunkai"..it's definitely there, even though the term is new.

Yeah, some famous people said kata helps condition etc..the thing is they did not say that is all it did, and certainly conditioning and strengthening are not mutually exclusive to application, in fact they should work hand in hand.

Plenty of Modern Japanese Budo type Karate mostly does kata this way, that's great and all, but it isn't all there is...an it is modern Japanese Budo, a different take than the Okinawan stuff.
