Tough Guys don't know Kata
It is amusing to see so many tough guys putting kata down. It is also obvious that they do not have a clue regarding the value of kata. You should continue to develop your body to take punishment because until you unlock the meaning of kata practice you will need to. Why do so many legitimate grand masters consider kata the gold of karate. Have you taken so many head shots that you consider your knowledge superior to my teacher who has practiced karate, continuously, for over 70 years. This is not intended as a put down but a call for common sense. Because many teachers fail to teach the true value of kata is more of a reflection on their knowledge then on the value of kata training.
