The basics, yes. Shorin Ryu karate, that is.

Neko, I believe you are refering to Ankichi Arakaki, one of Shoshin Nagamine's early teachers.

Medulant You are right, that is the gentleman I spoke of.
This young Sensei taught several of the up and coming young Masters in his short life. Again another testimony of quailty of life/Karate not quanity that makes great Karate.

Though I want to enjoy both, thats the American way.

If someone trains, they probably train to be able to deliver a killing strike (we don't strike half-a$$ed). If someone trains seriously , they don't train to rely on that one killing strike to work. They are prepared to do more.

So what did you say different then what I stated? Now you made a statement, but some disagree and believe in one strike, one kill/stop. I've seen it where they almost freeze in almost a kata or fencing like motion.

What I'm saying I guess you are too, your motion should be fluid and continous, not stagnate. You may know this but everybody doesn't, from what I've seen. Of course plenty of skilled MAs are in tune to reality.

I was just quick-posting, not replying to you. So, I am actually not saying anything different but I did not see your post when I made mine.

I agree to disagree, that we agree.

I bow to your superior knowledge and wisdom. A Backhanded bow.

I believe every August or every other August, they have a tournament on Okinawa. Currently, there is no kumite in that tournament, I was told, because one of the competitors died from a strike in the second tournament. That happened in the last twelve to fifteen years. Was is a single punch or more than one. However, the Okinawans felt it was not worth the risk, and the eliminated kumite from the tournament.
Some may not believed it happened, nut assuming that it is true, what do you take from it?

I think its an occupational hazard, high school kids are dying from athletic events like Football, Lacrosse, Hockey, Basketball and Track. Boxers die from their ring bouts, Kickboxers and Toughmen contest also. What does it mean? People are getting weaker, playing too much Game Boys or sitting around getting soft, maybe. Because its happens doesn't mean that these things are happening regularly or often enough to say Stop Kumite people are dying from it.
These are sad accidents thats all.

I understand the concern, but sometimes there is more to the story then whats on the surface. I know and believe it can happen (one strike kills) but its so rare that you/I shouldn't and can't bank on it.

Got to still be prepared.
