    What about the essence?

    Pointless question to even bother with. You know what the essence is even if you don't know how to put it in writing.

    Its not something to try to analise in depth - as it covers so much.

    Good to see that there are more of us who don't just discard the 'old' but rather mix what our predecessors learnt with our own experiences.

    On the hit list.

    I wouldn't say that :)

    I know what you mean when you say that people 'perform' kata, they tend to look like they are dancing to a reutine. I think thats what most look like at begginer level.
