Kata helps coordination and concentration. But should be thought of like doing push ups. Push ups make your uper body stronger which in turn can give your punches more power. But you're not going to win any street fight by droping to the ground and doing 20. Same thing with Kata, it has it's place as an excercise no more no less.

Failing that, get your ass to a throwdown. Austin is overdue for a TD. Perhaps you could come?
Edit: This is an invitation, not a challenge.

There's only 2 reasons why we have to learn Katas.
1) You can show all your friends this stuff so they won't think you've turned into a violent freak since starting MA.
2) You have to learn Katas to pass to your next rank.[img=http://img205.imageshack.us/img205/2364/8026700123940loij9.th.jpg]
