Re: Kata and Aikido

I can see some lack of knowledge. The previous writer is correct. There is more than imagine an opponent in the air. It is an spiritual practices where you find your true self. You work on speed, reaction to movement, power, etc. To reenforce this you have our regular bunka (application of the movement). This also complemented with kumite.
Kata is not an empty movement.
