Variations of kata

Hmmm..... I recorded my Heian Godan after class, just to make a point; I dont want to change my karate, so that judges will like it more. My opinion is that kata should be simple and void of added theatrics.

I also did Hangetsu today and decided to include it in this post.

Now the performance that baffled me into doing this post:

Anyone think he learns karate at the same place Jim Carrey did? Yes, he has crisp techniques and nice kime, but it doesnt inspire me in the least. (If anything, it makes me wanna quit karate to not be associated with this stuff) And if the judges prefer this way, should we change our karate to please them and win trophies?

Hmm.... I dunno why vimeo shows the link to the other video i uploaded there, aswell, but looking at the quality, it seems the better choice for video sharing.
