me doing Bassai Dai

I think this looks good up to a point. Here's a master doing the same kata: Kanazawa.

But in any case, it has a few areas that could use improvement, but it looks a lot better than katas that I have been putting a lot more work into. Maybe because Bassai Dai has a lot of dramatic motions. That could be it. It would also look better with me wearing the appropriate uniform in the appropriate setting and without the music.

I liked your clip more than the master's. maybe this says i've bought into the culture of lo-fi formalism, or maybe I am captured by the beauty of the individual in the privacy of his house showing mastery of a form past down hundreds of years.What ever the case the master in anonimity is far more compelling than the hot lights of celebrity.
