I'd like to see more acceptance and willingness for people to blend their arts across all karate styles and arts. there is no reason for all the styles....ALL Karate is hard and soft

style agnostic Karate...what would that look like, I wonder?

I just wanted to drift from the thread a bit and comment on this part to say I agree 100%!!

I don't see it truly on a big scale happening anytime soon, but I know that in past few years i've been exposed more to training with and under Karateka outside my style and it's been very eye-opening.
