Re: 052) Aikido Waza IS Kata: Week of September 7, 2009

I've long thought that those schools that don't explicitly call it kata are doing a disservice esp to beginners - it puts the whole cooperative training thing in perspective.
Peter Boylan and I exchanged blog posts early this yr or last yr about the freedom that comes with surrendering to kata training and then exploring all the variables inherent within the form.
