The movements generated in karate include, among other things, changes in height, especially when practicing kata. In this change of height, the principle is to move horizontally and vertically, never diagonally down or up. In this way, one creates a longer phase of stability and control over one's own action in each intermediate movement.
Through the kata this principle can be practiced intensively. This creates movement patterns that are instinctively used as needed. This means that one learns to move more mindfully even in combat. This is a preventive type of movement. In combat situations, attacks come even when you are in an intermediate movement. Being prepared for this is advantageous.
