    The crab leg takedown came from karate? That is so cool! I knew that grappling existed in Karate and TKD but not to that extent. Do you happen to know of some resource material to further look into grappling in Karate? I’ll be very interested in doing some research.

    Patrick McCarthy, or Koryu Unchinade or the IRKRS has a lot of it. some of the very best.
    the International Ryukyu Karate Research Society
    has been doing the research to reincorporate the grappling that was left behind when karate was brought to Japan. they have great stuff.



    Iain Abernethy has a fair bit

    Frankly, there are far too many steps in those grappling vids. I would recommend studying MMA or Bjj grappling to see how they deal with strikes. It's far simpler and no where near complex and over the top.
