    i was originally looking for the source study saying kata increases mental capacity in the area of memory(originally saw it reported in an article) when I came across other studies on google scholar.

    The ones not related to mental health i’ll post here. If you’re interested in how kata effects mental health check out www.veteranscombatcenter.org as I will occasionally be updating the research/sources page (overhaul to make that page more appealing coming soon.)

    Any way here’s an article that study kata in the context of visualization and the benefits.

    Kata has its place, but it shouldn't be overemphasized over actual sparring.

    there is no actual science in that article. do you have the full article? Without further details it is as believable as flat earth theory.

    it's a study that has to be paid for, but that article as you refer to it is a summary of the findings.

    Forgive me if I'm wrong but wouldn't any physical activity reduce aggression? Running for instance?

    Sounds like a question for google scholar.
    Since I’m not a neural scientist.

    I know exercise in general helps with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and suicidal thoughts
