Honouring the creations of others.

Keeping the past alive.

Daily in classical karate dojos the world over students diligently practice kata.

Each of these individual forms were developed many decades ago by a remembered, or a long forgotten master. Today we follow in their footsteps, and try to execute all of the kata's requirements as faithfully as possible.

Thus we pay homage to tradition, while trying our best to make the masters thoughts visible.

Remember: "Not everything needs updating"
