My senior student / business partner and I are attending one of Iain's seminars in two weeks, so it seemed like a good time to stop lurking and start participating. My background is in Tang Soo Do and Muay Thai, I'd never done kata with a thought to application (we focused more on sparring, just did the kata for tests). When I opened my own dojo I started exploring the roots of karate. After discovering Iain's videos and essays on the Pinan series, I went on a deep dive and ended up totally changing my curriculum.
This forum is dedicated to an exchange of ideas relating to the practical application of Okinawan and Japanese kata. Increase
your understanding of kata whilst helping others to do the same.
