I know from a light martial arts background that, at least in that context, a kata is a series of rudimentary motions and moves that you would never really use in a practical situation. But, those movements are the building blocks upon which many practical forms are built. Learn the katas and you've got the fundamentals committed to muscle memory and all other movements will almost come naturally. Perhaps code katas are similar???
