Hello everyone! This is my first post on this forum but I have been a long time lurker. I had a question and wanted to know what you good people thought. Can a Kata be changed enough to be "broken"? I understand that there are variations between styles and sometimes they may look very visually different. But my understanding is that the core concepts usually remain the same. However in my style, which I'll choose to keep to myself but it is a Shorin Ryu Karate style, some of our Kata are quite different. For instances in our Pinan Kata movements are changed from being high to low or being completely different moves entirely. Sadly in our style we don't practice Bunkai and the "reasons" for these techniques are very "Three K Karate" which don't hold up to close scrutiny. So I've tried my hardest to use the theories and information online (like Iains app) to put the pieces together but I keep running into problems of the movements just being to different to "make sense". Could our Kata be changed enough to where the whole form now doesn't make sense with the movements?
