Depth of Kata

This is a story.

A Karate expert observed two Karate students perform the same kata. The students were very anxious to receive his comments.

To the first he said, "They way you practice, you will never penetrate even the surface of the kata."

To the second he said, "The way you practice, there will be no end to the depths you can attain from the kata."

As a Karate expert, how would you assess you own practice -- shallow or deep?
