Sticks, did the 12 part paired Kata. It was neat, a little hard to get used to at first. There is a person that only comes to sticks class. I find this completely alien. I am sure that he would find my not really getting sticks all that much alien as well.
I started to see however how it is that timing and distance, and moving from center can all be improved on from sticks. I am no where near doing any of it, but I can see where it would help it.
