When people ask many how many "General " styles of Karate there are out there, I really can't give them a "Ball Park" figure. Can anyone one help me with that? I guess we would have to take into account the "Established" styles, and the new ones that have come up in the recent decades. At any rate, Thanks for your help!:asian:
 
It is my opinion that the different styles are really interpretations of the same thing. Over time, they have become established, but are still more similar than dissimilar.

For the most part, but some are pretty different. Most Japanese Karate seems similar to me but there's more variation in the Okinawan systems.
