Shorin ryu is a great system of Karate. It breaks down into four major styles being Shobayashi, Kobayashi, Matsubayashi and Matsumura Seito. There are some others such as Matsumura, Chubu, and Shudokan. I am sure I have not covered all. This is a style that most other styles have branched from. Along with Goju ryu or NahaTe, these systems formed the original Karate. Shuri, Tomari and Naha all had thier own styles. Shuri and Tomari came together to form Shorin and Naha became Goju. A simplified history but I hope it helps.

Everything Gino said about shorin-ryu applies to my style, Isshinryu. I've heard on Okinawa it's considered another offshoot of shorinryu, and 5 of our 8 hand katas come from it. Shorinryu is the dominant style on Okinawa, but schools vary a lot, and as has been stated that shorin-ryu is split into several sub-styles. It's probably 70 - 80% hands.

Pretty much just front, side, rear and roundhouse.

no doubt. lol

sounds like you guys are shopping for a car:

"The 2006 Toyota Shorin model has a wide variety of options...A standard LE model with a heavy hand to foot ratio enhancing it's rising power or a GT sport version for 50% more kick. The smooth agility and exceptional handling is a signature trait of its attack & pinan steering...."

lol...sorry, just never heard styles being talked about in terms of kick to punch ratios and percentage of techniques. sounded funny. I'm further away from my teenage years than I had thought.

Yeah. It's really quite simple. No reason you shouldn't master it in 3-6 months and then move right along to something more challenging.
