This has been bugging me for a long time, basically since I found I couldn't use any of the uke techniques as advertised. Partly from my Shotokan days, but the shito-ryu clubs I trained at also made use of exactly the same kihon techniques, obviously in a more constrained style. Someone, somewhere has at some point come up with a list of techniques pulled from the katas and turned them into "basics". Why these techniques? and did they have any experience of how you use them? I have a feeling they didn't.
