Interesting that a Chinese stylist practices Naihanchi Shodan. Is this a Chinese variant, or from one of the Okinawan systems
Ultimately, it doesn't matter what form(s) a person does... A combination of Japanese, Chinese, Okinawan, etc. Forms all head in the same direction. Movement is more important than the cataloguing of individual techniques represented in a form. How the movement is used to create techniques is the key moreso than the "standard" or "orthodox" breakdowns given in any particular form...
