Excellent Article, However, I'm not too keen on the Karate Attacks that are used by ShitoRyu/Shukokai are not for me.

I tend to look at Bunkai/Oyo as defences against Real attacks in real situations.

i see the kata as stand-up grappling not basic block and strike that tends to be seen there

Bassai for one has 14 neck wrenches and other kata are just as lethal.
