It's been a while since I posted last. New family commitments have laid waste to oh, so many things. As a side project I decided to set up a kata wiki: katapedia.org to help raise awareness of the kata aspects of karate. So far it has some pages on Kenwa Mabuni's comments on the meaning of angles, Chojun Miyagi's rules for analysis and the implications for kata structure. There's also basic (descriptive) bunkai for the Pinans based on those guidelines. I don't expect any of it to be new to most readers here. Videos /photos will fill out as round tuits are acquired. It's been an interesting project and doing it I've reversed several opinions I previously held over katas.
Hopefully it will do something to help those within/without karate who think kata is just a dance or performance or just don't "get it".
