That is so true. I know for a fact that no two people will learn/interpret katas the same. For example. Each year we have to have a 3 day instructors seminar to renew our teaching credintials. Each year we will learn a new kata from a diffrnt style. A few years ago we did nijushiho..now we were all watching the same thing but afterwards I noticed several high ranked people doing it differently then the way we were taught.
