    World class form

    Sure, it's a performance kata, but it is very well done and she is a cutie:

    Very good! Far better than a *lot* of black belts I've seen.

    Indeed, even given the performance element.
    Very crisp, clean and fluid.

    Compare to this form, which "performance flavor" do you like?

    - To use few slow moves to set up few fast moves? or
    - To flow smoothly from the beginning all the way to the end?

    Both are good so it's not an either/or BUT I do like her performance better.
    The pauses and slow moves give a look of "pent up tension" and "potential explosion", know what I mean?

    I agree, watching quality kata performance is pretty entertaining sometimes.

    She's very graceful, power dynamics and speed, excellent. I've seen her perform on YouTube before. Noticed the knife-hand technique as part of the Kata.
