comment Drawbacks of code kata
Code katas are not about rigid repetition; they're more about working to solve a problem, then working to improve your solution until you're satisfied. From Kata One: "The goal of this kata is to practice a looser style of experimental modelling. Look for as many different ways of handling the issues as possible. Consider the various tradeoffs of each. What techniques use best for exploring these models? For recording them? How can you validate a model is reasonable?"

Read the link provided in the question; the idea is not mindless repetition as you seem to assume from the name.

This answer appears to be getting a lot of support from the "I just want to do my job" crowd; it's completely useless in answering the question. Practice is what you make of it.

comment Drawbacks of code kata
While I agree that solving problems is a good way to improve as a programmer, learning to write elegant code can be a worthwhile pursuit as well. I wish that some of the original developers of code I currently maintain had put some time and effort into writing elegant code rather than copying and pasting to just get things to work.

comment Type mocking frameworks does not change coding practices from testability point?
If you're writing Java, Mockito supports mocking of concrete classes, not just interfaces.
