Thanks Greg, that is a great article. That indeed is more complete than what I was telling in my best English
However, I would not say that most techniques are a form of kata. It might be possible to train it this way, but do not forget that kata is a strikt form. The techniques as we train them in Aikido will change depending on how tall, how heavy or how strong the training partner is. Therefore I would not call this a kata training at all.
Can someone agree with this?
