Interesting blog post on kata training

Full disclosure, Dan is my "elder brother", so I'm already inclined to his way of thinking.

That said, I like the idea that kata drills should heavily involve the failure of techniques.

Dan is a good man IMO, I particulary like his attitude to sharing.

I nearly always teach my students what happens if you fail - or are not in control, obviously once you get ot a certian stage this becomes less significant. As is getting ahead fo your opponents mind and body.

Doing it the other way around is one of many peoples biggest failings IMO, false confidence can be a serious problem.
