Re: The GREAT kata debate

If you're a martial artist there is just about no way around kata.

Maybe with the modern invention of recording equipment kata might not be as necessary as they once were.

Martial arts systems are about the transmission of specific techniques, and theories.
If you didn't have kata, it would be very hard to keep those techniques and theories in tact.
Not necessary. as far as I know, the systema folks have no kata. no kata, no limits.
