    Anyone know this song?

    This song is very familiar to me. It is Karate Do Sanka and we sing it with my Sensei every time I go to Okinawa or he comes state site. My understanding is that the song was created by an Okinawan karate association. Not sure which one. I also have my students sing this song. It is great!!!

    Shotokan

    I am not a shotokan stylist but I will advise against learning from a video tape. The tape may give you the pattern but as you know what it does not give you are all of the little things that you need from personal instruction. Good luck however in your new endeavor. In the sprit of bushido...
