Sure. Any form of striking combination or submission attempt is a kata, unless you are only counting partnerless training. I do a great deal of weapons work, alot of which is kata, as well as some tai-chi.

no offense to ironman or easy but come on guys!!

you both know he means the differant forms of kata's used in traditional karate.

And just like the definition yes they are "detailed patterns of movements practiced either solo or in pairs"

but in traditional they are actually moves, or you could even say "combos" i took karate for a few years so i had to do them, and they had names.

like this kata, and that kata and the mean dragon kata LOL sorry it was a long time ago and i dont remember the exact names!

Thanks. I was trying to keep him from feeling stupid, but whatever.

People stopped using kata as a form of MMA training after the introduction of Brazillian Jiu-jitsu in America, which proved that partner training was much more effective in developing patterns of movement than forms and katas. Miletich Fighting Systems is also an example of strict partner training.

There are still some groups in Japan that do kata training for MMA, but none of their fighters are any good.

Judo still uses kata. There are three sets of three that you must know for your black belt. It is boring kinda like dancing. One hand here for one step then here and so on. And if both partner's are'nt really good it looks like hell. But yeah anyone taking judo should know it. And should have done there first set by blue. Second and first for brown and all three for black. they actually still have kata competions belive it or not.

While I don't enjoy it, it is a necessarity to move up in rank and my club practices it frequently. (I mean frequently.) However I would never risk questioning my Sensi or his motives so I practice with a smile on my face and intentions to succeed.
