Example text

However, the fact that an applied movement will be rough round the edges should never be used as an excuse for poor kata. You should always strive to make your kata as near to perfection as possible. If you can’t perform the movements to a decent standard in ideal conditions, you stand little chance of being able to perform the movement at all in actual combat!

If you have any doubts, I’d suggest that you get a partner, put on a pair of 16oz boxing gloves and go for it! Have a go at blocking and countering and I guarantee you will get trounced. From this we can conclude that the katas are unlikely to contain much blocking.
