I particularly like from 2:10 to 2:29! Talk about a big lead-up to an anti-climax!

I see what you are saying, Shonuff. Perhaps I got a little carried away, and I definitely did not mean to offend anyone or imply that their training was somehow less relevant than anybody elses. I don't believe that Shotokan *can't* be used as a viable means of self defense (anything can be used as self defense if it is trained for that purpose), just that according to a lot of what has been presented about Shotokan karate would suggest that self defense is not the style's first or primary aim, at least not "official" Shotokan. Such things as the 20 precepts, the original bunkai not being passed on, the changes that were made to the kata by Funakoshi, and the fact that it was being introduced to school children as physical fitness and changed/defanged to reflect this new role would suggest that Shotokan's primary purpose was no longer self-defense. Plus the movements that are labelled "blocks" when they are something else, and presented that way for the most part (unless you read some Anslow and Abernathy ). You can see where my own misconceptions arise in my attempt at defining what is "good" Shotokan . So, my apologies to all for coming off like a retard. By the way, I am surprised that nobody posted this vid yet:
Locked, cocked, and ready to rock!
