Because I voted "other" I probably should specify it.

The karatestyle I practice is called Nihon karatedou Genwakai
(in japanese: {蓹a)

Sincerly,

Umh...must ask if Shorin/Shorinji -branch is so small that it often gets unnoticed in these kind of threads...


Not trolling or flaming, just asking.

Japanese Goju Ryu.

Also elements of Chinese MA (Tai Chi) Filipino (escrima is our first kobudo element) and anything else that works. My sensei is generally a traditionalist (at least, that's MY impression) but is not totally fixated on it, and will adapt and incorporate anything that is appropriate/workable.

Yeah brother!The weird thing is that the majority of styles listed are highly influenced by the Shorin school(s). Oh well, whatever. That's the reason a lot of Shorin ryu guys have an intense loyalty to their art! Somebody's got to give it props. Especially since most styles of modern karate, Korean or Japanese, "bit" our stylee!!! Te (Shuri or Naha), history should be a fundamental part of any real dojos curriculum...

Happy tournament training warriors!

Oh yea! The only problem with that is, then all these Soke would have a difficult time passing on their false lineage. :D :D :D

Kosho Ryu is my main style.
Wing Chun as a supplementary style/extra learning.

Shuri Ryu

The other catagory is more than twice the count as the number two style polled. Perhaps you should of listed more of the different styles to get a more informative poll.

My Karate style and main current style of organized training is Korean Tang Soo Do or Soo Bahk Do, I think Moo Duk Kwan.

It has Pinans, Naihanchis, and Bassai. I think of it as Korean Shorin-ryu.

You are correct sir. Very similar... Pinan's 1 and 2 are reversed, 1 being 2 and 2 being 1. Kind of makes since since Pinan Shodan is the more difficult of the two.

I'd agree that there needed to be more options to deal with the Okinawan ryuha as well as the Kyokushin off-shoots.
Although I'm in "the big 4" :D

Hello, J. K. A. Shotokan. Training for beginner and advanced in 1964 much like Kenshuei training in Japan, only no full punches to students, and then there was no real full contact even for Dans. Very different time. Just keep working. Peace, Antonino Ferro
