    Where do these newer "traditional" styles stand in the traditional circles? I am speaking of the Oyama off shoots, and the like. Are they considered traditional by the hard core old school, or upstarts? Do they consider themselves "traditional" ?

    Salute in Christ,

    I'd consider them fairly traditional (in their approach), but I don't know what others would say.

    Try to look at this web site:

    You'll find there's a great deal in difference between traditional japanese MA, and modern japanese MA. I feel that it boils down to personal differences on which to choose.

    In this sense, no karate is traditional JMA.

    Jeps.

    And there are people that don't think that karate is japanese.
    But I cann't follow that discussion.

    Karate is not Japanese
    It is Okinawan
    It originated in Okinawa then Gichin Funakoshi (The originator of Shotokan) brought it over to Japan. I believe in 1922

    In my opinion, original karate is Okinawan but not Japanese, having developed when the Ryukyus were at least technically another country (who would call a lei or luau or hula an American tradition?), but of course there are now Japanese styles (Shotokan, Wado, etc.).
