The ITP Kata
Want to be led in your practice of the Kata? Here's your chance! Have ITP teachers Barry Robbins and Pam Kramer lead you in a private session of the Kata right in your own home or workplace.
The ITP Kata 2-CD set offers two guided versions of the ITP Kata, the series of movements created by ITP cofounder and Aikido sensei George Leonard. It is designed to articulate all the muscle groups and joints in the body and allow for deep rhythmic breathing, relaxation, transformational imaging and meditation. The ITP Kata is one of the core practices ITP has to offer. It embodies the definition of practice itself; it is an activity that, for all its benefits, is done on a regular basis for its own sake, as a path of practice upon which you walk.
Disc one of The ITP Kata is an instructional version of the Kata, led by Barry Robbins and designed for beginners. Led by Pam Kramer, disc two is for more experienced Kata practitioners. Both CDs are designed for those who are familiar with the ITP Kata. For more detailed and visual instruction, consider purchasing The Life We Are Given and the Tao of Practice DVD.
