Is the validity of the training in the kata or the practitioner?
"No mind" doesn't mean weak mind. It means a completely present mind where nothing but the moment exists.
If a student is thinking about their bills, their meeting tomorrow, the 18 principles that will be explored in the course of the kata before they get to them, and how cool they look in their new gi in the mirror...then their training will not be as...useful...as it could be.
Let's say that in the big 3 Uechi kata I believe that I know at least one yummy way to use each and every movement in those three forms. Is that enough to make what is in all those forms valid?
