I began practicing the first kata, over and over, concentrating first on my feet, then my legs, my hands, my breathing, my eyes, and finally my overall composure. I would stay on each are until I felt it was right. And a strange thing occurred. I noticed an incredible change in my ability, almost overnight.

 I wasn't the only one. People commented in the dojo. It was obvious to everyone. This attention detail, to perfection, was really paying off. When I speeded up now, the flow of power in my kata seemed effortless rather than forced. I was amazed. Getting all the little things right was making a big difference.
