I love puzzles. I even have a puzzle table. To recreate the puzzle you have to study the picture. In the beginning I start by separating the edge pieces from the others building the edge as I sort. Once the edge is done I study the picture looking for the easier recognizable areas to put together.
As I look for pieces to build an area I keep studying them and the picture. I find myself discovering certain nuances in patterns and colors. I walk around the table studying pieces and the picture from different angles. The more I get to know the picture and the pieces the easier it is for me to recreate the picture. To understand what looks like a black sky, is various hues of black, midnight blue and dark purples and all the shades in between.
Katas are like this. We see the whole picture and the pieces. First we work on just getting the outside edges done. Then we have to study all the pieces that go on the inside to get a full picture. We have to study the kata from different situations and viewpoints to start to understand the nuance in the interplay of movement, energy, balance and gravity. The more we get to know and understand the kata the better we are at putting the pieces together to recreate the rich story it is telling.
