I'm definitely gonna keep doing kata. And now there's Shotokan Classes at the gym I go to. I might try going to those about once a month. I enjoy doing MMA for the competition and pushing myself, but it's not something I can do forever.

The head coach is in his early 50s and he already can't even hold pads anymore from his shoulder and knee injuries from boxing.

Also, I learned a lot more in the dojos I've trained at. Pressure points, Japanese culture. Japanese words. Those were always interesting tidbits.
