What is Shin Nagare Karate?

Discussion in 'Japanese Martial Arts - General' started by AlwaysTraining, Jan 13, 2006.

  1. I've heard that it is a shotokan derivative. Outside of that, I don't know anything about it. Anybody out there familiar with it? What are it's differences from "shotokan", etc?

    Maybe the founder of this style wants to emphasis that this is a new style, because shin = new, nagare = stream.

    The only place I recognize the name from is http://www.brooksmartialarts.com/pcma/arts_001.htm
    That is the site for the Professional Combined Martial Arts Assoc.
    They will promote you in that style if you join their group and follow their requirements.

    Shin Nagare Karate was founded in the 1980s by Leo Wilson Shihan, who was also the founder of Midori Yama Budokai (as linked above by Yama_Ryu). The style is an outgrowth of Shotokan, but it's been heavily influenced by American kickboxing (specifically the kicking style of Bill "Superfoot" Wallace) and by Tang Soo Do. Many SNK schools also work jujitsu into the program, although the degree to which that is done varies wildly from dojo to dojo.
