The art and magic of karate is in the small details which are derived from principles.

There are many teachers who can teach techniques but only few who can teach the art of karate.
Use the form as a vehicles to understand and digest the principles.
The principles and details derived from them make the magic of karate, make the technique effective and effortless, and applicable to any circumstance.
Follow the form and you will be limited to the form, follow the principles, digest the small details, make them your "body system" and you will be limitless, beyond form, and you will effortlessly be able to apply and adopt the technique to any changing circumstance, any space, with maximum effect.
