Gichin Funakoshi Founder of Shotokan Karate
"Once a kata has been learned, it must be practiced repeatedly until it can be applied in an emergency, for knowledge of just the sequence of a form in Karate is useless."
Yasuhiro Konishi Founder of Shindo Jinen-ryu Karate
"Karate aims to build character, improve human behavior, and cultivate modesty; it does not, however, guarantee it."
Kenwa Mabuni Founder of Shito-ryu Karate
"A kata is not fixed or immoveable. Like water, it’s ever changing and fits itself to the shape of the vessel containing it. However, kata are not some kind of beautiful competitive dance, but a grand martial art of self-defense – which determines life and death."
