- All things being equal, the person closest to the start of his kata will win in a kata contest.
- It is important to stay in your embusen in a dojo other wise you run into another practitioner.
- Embusen is the path or line of kata. Embusen on a highway is very important because if you don't follow the correct path or line of movement, or stay in your lane of traffic on a highway, guess what!
- All styles or sensei do not teach embusen but it does exist.
- To make it work, remember that all steps in kata are adjustable.
- In the videos I show how embusen and with the exception of naihanchi kata start and end in the same spot.
