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 practioner.
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. AJA
