I'm currently studying Tomiki Aikido under Dr. Yoji Kondo, although I started in Yoshinkan aikido under Helton-Sensei. I'm also studying Taiji under D. Gilmer at StillwaterTaichi I'm informally studying jo and bokken.

comment What are the purposes of martial arts forms?
"Only karate, . . . has the second component of martial training, i.e. kata." This is not true. Tomiki aikido has kata. One could argue that taiji is kata. Since Tomiki shares Goshin with Judo, I believe judo has kata. Difficult to evaluate your core answer in the context of misstatements like these.

comment What is the application for tai chi's single whip?
Alas, the summary is the title; I find it very difficult to summarize kinesthesiology in text. Essential Mr. Gilmer demonstrates a number of variations of single whip in response to attacks.
