INFO: Combat Learning Podcast is about applying scientific research and practical experience to better teach and learn martial arts. It's a deep dive into the most cutting-edge methodologies underlying effective training today, discovered through the lens of some of the best thinkers inside and outside of the martial arts community.

My guest today is Iain Abernethy, a well-known expert on practical karate training and kata application, and an advocate of traditional martial arts practice.

In this episode, Iain presents his own view of kata as a process of 4 inextricable stages:

1. Solo Practice

2. Functional Application

3. Principle-based Partner Practice

4. Live Partner Practice or "Kata-based" Sparring

While most other traditional martial artists view kata as a solo exercise that must be translated into practical techniques, Iain sees solo practice, application, and sparring as all one and the same process entailed by the kata system.

Iain also explains what "kata-based sparring" is, why he hates one step sparring, and the necessity of bringing modern training methods into traditional martial arts practice.

No matter who you are, this episode is simmering over with interesting and helpful discussion. So, if you're excited to dive in, hit the subscribe button on your podcatcher now!
