A friend has found an Okinawan karate class that he is keen to try. Upon looking in to it, it seems to be associated to the OGKK association which seems to teach something called Jundokan. I looked it up and it seems to teach a style of Okinawan Karate.
Despite my research I have a few questions about it if anyone can help:
i) It doesn't seem to do much (if any) free sparring. Is that correct?
ii) Is it Jundokan Goju radically different from any other kind of Goju, or is it being a seperate branch more of a political thing?
iii) What sort of conditioning is entailed in the class? My buddy is a distance runner (marathons and ultras) so he doesn't want to do anything that is detrimental to his running.
Thanks for any assitance folks.
P.S. I sent an email to the instructor a week ago, and no answer back yet, hence my post. The class is too far for me to go to check it out, so I appreciate any info.
