      Just setting up this thread – Sempai should be the first to analyze her kata.

      Ok, some things I noticed are:
      I definitely need more pauses between moves.
      The hand change to one of the overhead strikes didn’t have good palming.
      On the “twirl” disarm when I finished the circle, the bo was not level; the far end was pointing up a bit.
      On the move right after that, I had the bo up too high to block a strike to the lower leg, instead of bringing it lower and then lifting up.

      Also, on the last poke to the back after the main back sequence, the bo wavered at the end, instead of being still, and I definitely did not pause enough on that.

      The first thing that I saw was: TOO FAST! It’s hard to analyze the kata if everything is a blur! I think your comment about needing more pauses (punctuation, as Hanshi Bernard would say) is a good one. That will definitely help.

      Watch it again, but just look at your feet. There are a couple of places where you seem to be jumping into stance. Slowing down might help that, too.
