Hello, Would like to get an idea of the importance that is placed on kata and forms by the various practitioners, and systems, represented here. On another forum the subject was brought up. Looking for more input. Kata/Forms: 1) Necessary? 2) Very useful? 3) Somewhat useful? 4) Slightly useful? 5) Totally useless? If so, or not, why??? Trying to find the "general" consensus. Thanks, in advance for your assistance and input! Milt G.
