Funakoshi said that knowing the kata and not the purpose of the movements was not karate at all , but merely a dance .
And while I do beleive karate techniques have a huge applicability and scope for application , I think it`s fundamentally flawed not to train for HAPV
and because we do karate it only makes sense to use the techniques of kata to confront HAPV
Responding to unrehearsed attacks with technique from kata , sounds like what Kanbun did with the Jiyu Kobo approach .
I cannot find a reason not to memorise what i learn form kata . Or to share it if others find it usefull .
the issue should not be searching for more applications in kata IMHO
the issue should be to confront more ways of being attacked .
A slight but very important difference from my perspetive .
otherwise we may end up with 500 wristlocks an no defence to a right hook .
It`s a case of putting the cart in front of the horse .
But all just MHO ... even though it`s false humiltiy
