...too...many...words!!! jk. I think changing katas is wrong and right in some ways. It's wrong because it is stealing from the other style, but it could be right if people could tweak it for a competition of some sort and add a little improvisation....maybe!!

All the masters of old changed the Kata. Today with all the 100's of different schools there are many interpretations of Kata.

No one has or practises original Kata. No one!

Its like the Bible, no one has the original copies, and there are many translations. But... the meanings can be understood still despite slightly different word preferences.

Slight and minor changes will not effect your fighting ability.

Having a new bio-mechanically poor and ineffective fighting technique capability is not good at all.

Is Karate limited by the past?

Is new research and technology not possible to the develop growth and greater performance of Kata?

As Funakoshi said "The old and the new, this is only a matter of time, the way, who will pass it on straight and well?"

What is now old was once new. What is new will soon be old.

Man has made great strides in every endeavour and particularly sports in the last 30 years. Is Karate never going to benefit from the research?
