Thanks! What belts are you? I am a green belt 2-stripe. I am hoping to pick up self-defense tips and kata/bunkai info.

For a moment there I actually thought you were telling them not to do karate....

Anyway

I don't do karate either, but hey, we're all different. Welcome to the boards

Ops, didn't see that!

Your right! I'm not telling you not to do karate. Just didn't write it correctly, sorry!

I am a green belt, but I also have a shodan in shotokan.

Welcome aboard! I'm a Taekwondo practitioner, never studied shito-ryu but I just wanted to put out the welcome mat for ya. By the way, I seriously considering cross-training in Shotokan... :asian:

Go for it. Don't expect to be doing all the flash kicks you're used to doing though. Shotokan uses a lot more hand techniques, and simpler kicks. Only problem you might have is one that I am having at the moment. The kata I have been doing are so close to the shotokan ones, I sometimes find myself doing the wrong one. Mainly with Naihanchi shodan/ Tekki shodan. Depends which of the TKD forms you use.

Thanks, I'm certain I'll start within a few weeks. TKD received much influence from Shotokan, and I do need much more work on my hand techniques, so that's why I chose to cross-train in Shotokan karate... :asian:
