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.

"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.

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.
