    My next step in my MA journey, From Shotokan to Matsubayashi Ryu

    That's exactly what i'm going to do. I can get sparring outside of the school, and the instruction and attention to detail is pretty sharp, so it seems like its solid training minus the sparring, which isn't every thing, just something I really enjoy, but i'm DEFINATLY going to ask about the...

    My next step in my MA journey, From Shotokan to Matsubayashi Ryu

    Thats the whole reason I want to spar. I can learn the craft and art from the teacher, and then apply it in real situation else were, but its not exactly practical from a personal level stand point, making extra trips and burning extra gas.

    My next step in my MA journey, From Shotokan to Matsubayashi Ryu

    I wonder that too! I'm not happy about not sparring. There is a local MMA gym I can do open sparring at to work what I've learned in a full contact situation. Like I said, I come from Muay Thai backgroud, but I enjoyed the easier point karate sparring still, and id like to find a way to spar...

    Full contact karate organizations and the future of karate competitions

    something like more karate combat shows would be great , but the chances of that happening are known. The idea behind the smaller show is there fighters like me who would love to fight on something like karate combat, but the options don't exist for most fighters. This smaller show would give...

    Full contact karate organizations and the future of karate competitions

    I love sabaki too , which is one point why if i do make this happen they will wear a gi. One problem i might have is fighters grabbing the gi and holding whilst punching the head which i would want to limit

    Full contact karate organizations and the future of karate competitions

    So with shows like karate combat, and karate pro fight, do you think we'll see an increase in both traditional karate/martial arts practitioners , and traditional schools make more of an emphasis on this style of ccompetition, or do you think its too niche still? And would you like to see more...

    Karate journey road block

    So i ran into a snag with my training. My shotokan school closed, and there are no local except one, but its too expensive for me. So im considering switching to shori ryu, because its local and affordable, but i know little about it. Is shori much different from shotokan? Because i want to...

    Questions for those who started their own system/ style

    The hand striking is mostly runs the gauntlet from all the arts, power comes from the hips and the legs, hands up. as for kicking, the idea of combing a muay thai kick and a karate kick mechanics is what I personally use. This video can explain it better than I can.

    Fellow Shotokan Karateka!

    So I love Shotokan! I've train many marital arts, including Muay Thai, boxing, kung fu, among others. The reason I feel in love with this style, is for me at least, it was a different atmosphere than you'd get in a full contact gym, and the teachings were very much out of the box from my...

    on some yes, definatly. The thing that made me look into this, particular pugilism was my interest in bare knuckle techniques, and I found through research showing that while traditional karate and pugilism/bare knuckle boxing developed on the other ends of the world, around the same time, from...
