AEG Meta Edit

The Striking as Air kata [1] relied upon speed and maneuverability above all else. The kata allowed phenomenally quick movement at the cost of both accuracy and power. [2]

FFG Meta Edit

The Striking as Air kata taught to withdraw after striking, because a blade should be readied for the next strike as part of the follow-through. After striking, the bushi matched their motions to their foe's, moving as their enemy did to eliminate the best angles of attack. [3]
