Thought For The Week:
July 3rd, 2000
Let's look at our Kata and techniques
for what they really are. The simplest and most efficient
path from Point A to Point B. What you see is what it is. There is no
secret or hidden meaning.
For example, a down
block is executed in the same way that a carpenter raises and lowers
a hammer to drive a nail and the same way a baseball player winds up
a bat and swings it at a ball. Gentle wind-up and a hard, fast swing.
In the Kata your
hands can be used as tools, such as a hammer or a knife.
