    Yup. But it ain't just judo from what I'm hearing.

    A former shodan-level karateka who now does judo told me that "the good stuff" in kata bunkai (grappling, low kicks etc.) is very rarely taught all, and it's even rarer to find a dojo that actually does it properly.

    No bunkai in Judo that I know of. It's more a matter of having the years of experience and understanding to know how to teach it and how kata is supposed to be a supportive training method instead of something you just learn to get promoted.

    Another issue is that judoka at different experience levels will get different things from kata.

    In Judo, at least, it CAN help you perform better, with the caveats of a good teacher and what the individual student is ready to understand.
