In the book The Way of Kata by Kane and Wilder, there is a section about strategy and tactics. They describe the differences between the two terms, and state how this relates to styles and finding kata applications. They explain that understanding your chosen style's strategy is important, as it will allow you to make optimal use of the tactics you learn. Overall, knowledge of this strategy provides a foundation for finding applications within the kata of your style. They then go on to describe goju ryu's strategy, and provide examples from kata.
So ... What is shotokan's strategy? I'd like to discuss this with anyone who has ideas to share.
