Re: 31-count Kata....HELP???

Hi nick
Weapons work is just unarmed stuff with the appropriate change in distance and movement etc to allow for the lump of wood/metal at the interface. So done correctly there should be no 'jumping' by anyone. We'll have to explore this further.
Also, if you set a gentle scene the more impact a violent act will have. Like the calm before the storm - the calmer the calm, usually the more violent and destructive the storm. So if you want to batter someone, place the calm before the storm - the shock value alone can be amusing.
