Sample text

It must be understood that each and every kata was intended to be applied as a stand-alone selfdefence system. They were not designed to be used in conjunction with all the others (although there is no reason why they could not be). Each kata records the fighting techniques and principles of the person who created it. As an example, if we look at Naihanchi/Tekki kata it becomes apparent that the kata is a complete system of fighting. Naihanchi/Tekki is often explained as being for fighting with your back to a wall, or on the raised ground between paddy fields.

In competitive martial arts, the combatants tend to begin the fight from outside the longest range allowed, for example karateka start from outside kicking range, boxers from outside punching range etc. However, in real situations, most fights begin at ‘conversation range’. The vast majority of fights are preceded by some kind of verbal exchange and it is extremely likely that the fight will begin from this distance (which is 41 Bunkai-Jutsu around two feet apart or less). It therefore stands to reason that the vast majority of kata techniques will be for use at this range.

When applying kata techniques, do not be concerned if the movement no longer looks exactly the same as it does within the kata, because if it does, I would say that you are not practising realistically enough! The very fact that you are now performing the movement with an opponent will result in some outward changes. The more realistic the practice, the messier the movements will become. There is simply no way a kata movement will be neat and tidy when it is applied. However, the fact that an applied movement will be rough round the edges should never be used as an excuse for poor kata.
