Excellent points, Jim.

Quote:

One of the main problems you have defending your point of view is grappling, on the ground, is mainly concerned with positional dominance to effect a submission,

this can't be transmitted in solo kata, it has to be done with a partner, and no line of Okinawan Karate, that I have ever seen or heard about does train, in this manner with this in mind.

but the [edit:karate] strategy is NOT to go to ground or be taken to ground to try for positional dominance
