    Uselessness of kata in the real world!

    I have a different view of forms than I had as a younger guy. After a big accident all I could do was forms to rehab from my whiplash and back injuries. Also, as I understand it, forms are the encyclopedia of alot of traditional styles.

    Big schools, small standards

    I only run classes with 5 or less people. Obviously I do not make much money but people that come to train get trained to my standard. So I will never be a "successful " gym but the people leave with my best efforts to train them to defend themselves.

    DK Yoo is a hype train. He learned how to sell hype. Just like a lot of teachers. I was not impressed before but I was impressed with seeing him get in a ring and jam. It takes iron balls to fight in a ring.
