Anyone care to explain? I know Shotokan is more linear. I think....haha I'm interested in taking some karate lessons. I've been in traditional taekwondo for about 13 years(complete with joint locks, takedowns and all that fun stuff). I know some basic grappling, and have some experience in a mix of Tai Chi/Wushu/Aikido from my instructor and a lot of yang tai chi homestudy. So if there is a karate style that combines better with the above, please let me know. I know there is a shotokan and isshin ryu close by, and I THINK a shorin ryu within a reasonable distance. So what are your suggestions?
