This is Part 1 of a video clip on utilizing all of the component moves in a basic technique.
This was prompted by the statement in "Way of Kata" by LA Kane and Iain's blog on keys to Kata.
Way of Kata states that there are no wasted moves in a true kata. Iain states that "no movement is without purpose".
This is true, but before you can interpret your kata moves, you must know the different purposes for the components of each move.
To illustrate this point I did a quick and dirty video utilizing one technique. You'll see some familiar stuff her if you've seen Iain's videos. I took one technique and started breaking down different parts of the move, why they are there, and how they can be used.
I hope you find this interesting. As stated in the video, this was done "off the cuff" with no preparation or outline, so yes there are things that could have been covered more in depth, etc.
