Re: Kata dori - tips to remember

Thanks guys.
That clip is brilliant, cheers! From this thread I also particularly like the imagery of the bow, and the emphasis on the angle moved for deflection. We tried a brief technique from kata dori and it made so much sense.
I was surprised at how similar the sense of space was to irimi nage once the force of the attack was dealt with. Just curious; who here finds it easier to initially deflect out in front vs. around out?

The world changes when you do.
