sometimes students have problems just remembering kata never mind aplying other concepts. so during kata i feel it is easier to let them step then strike. like i said i wouldnt withhold the info i just wouldnt call them on it during kata. i would however try to get them to work this during pad work or something.
yeah good call , I work the pads first then take everything back to kata , so it`s kind of a different paradigm . Different methods different folks , I think stringing together little reinforcements is very helpfull though , the stomp gives kinetic , and noise feedback , and timing the hand and foot encourages the development of the harmonies ( a primary focus to our aproach ) the more personal stimulus you can create the easier it`s absorbed IMHO , kind of like the opposite of fighting where to much from others is distracting .
But I digress .
