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

Hey Marc,

Thanks for the little/mini essay. I agree....clearly, aikido waza as practised in the dojos I have trained at is kata practise. Perhaps when the seniors "play" after class (and sometimes during:-) there is henka waza and this will blur the lines for some...but...it is still kata training. This fact seems so obvious that I wonder why anyone would refute it.....

Cheers,

Russ
