I can't make out the quotes from your replies.

Maybe I will get around to it one day but why would you want to see a video?

You mean for the drills for kata?

Well they are traditional drills formulated on traditional Okinawan goju ryu. They work. They arent something some one invented to formulate what they think trad karate should be.

By the way I didint invent them, I leave such things to people with the knowledge of trad goju ryu, but variations and improvisation on the basic themes are used.

Hope that helps.

Jude being politicaly correct.

Might do one day S.O.L. The problem with that is that what I do is traditional. In other words I dont use gloves or shin pads and I use the makiwari, weight training ( the modern version a deviation from trad training) and other things for limb conditioning.

With out those elements of training I doubt if the techniques in certain traits of trad karate could be used effectively. So me posting a video more than likely wouldnt be of much use unless the practice is trad karate.

Jude

Sorry Jude - but I just don't get what you're trying to say and why you can't post a video. I, for one, am interested in seeing your "trad" 2 person gekisai drill.

What flavor of Goju do you practice? Who's/what drills are you using, what people are you being inspired by?

Are you actively training Goju with someone?

no pressure, lol.

"The problem with that is that what I do is traditional."

i fail to see the problem with that? i practice a traditional style of karate too and you can see a few video's of my skinny pale but on the net.

"With out those elements of training I doubt if the techniques in certain traits of trad karate could be used effectively"

never asked you about that. but thanks.

"So me posting a video more than likely wouldnt be of much use unless the practice is trad karate."

but you do pratice a trad style? thats what you said? but in your bio it says your into mma now?

anyway, please post a vido of some of your training methods if you get the time, so we can have a good idea about where your coming from. thanks.

To avoid any further confusion.
And to answer to most of the posts.

Video wouldnt be much point. Perhaps one day but certainly not at this moment in time.

The drills arent mine. They are trad Okinawan Goju Ryu with a lineage straight back to the founder. Not something some else made up.

The drills and the kata go together.



Conditioning plays an important part in the techniques.

Some trad karate styles dont use conditioning. With out that conditioning some of the techniques wouldnt be effective.
One example being the maki wari.
The other being quite intensive weight training.

MMA and judo I practice as well once or sometimes twice a week are sport in that the techniques used are fairly safe. The judo throws however can be easily reversed back to their original intention.

Trad karate I practice isnt a sport.


Regards the strain of goju? The strain doesnt interest me.
Who does what with whom is politics. I have no interest.
What I practice and see works. I practice with a goju practioner.

That I hope answers all your questions.

Jude

Really? if you're claiming lineage and training that goes directly back to Miyagi Chojun i'm sure we'd all love to hear about that.
Even some of the bigger names in Goju don't make quite such grandiose claims, so if you're going to I'd suggest giving a little detail if you want to be taken seriously.

No, it doesn't answer any of the questions, despite being argumentative and rude about it, you've failed to even explain or mention one single drill you practice, on a thread where that is the very subject.

Evidentally you can't even describe what vein of Goju you are practicing or who with, pretty suspect to say the least, why should we listen to you when you refuse to provide even this basic information?

At one time you claimed to not even practice Goju (you mention this in the "by jove they've got it" thread) and were simply making an independent study of Goju kata, so which is it?
