Re: The GREAT kata debate

Since while your in the street you have no idea who or what you are going to fight then why does it make sence to practice for such a situation. They might be a better fighter or worse you don't know. So what is the point of training with a fighting frame of mind. It doesn't make sence. Your going to beat up a guy and he is going to back to his car and get a gun. Now what do you do? (run). The point is that unless your looking for trouble these situations are rare, and it is pointless to train for endless hours on something you might use for 3 seconds of your entire life.
