I was just wondering what style of karate some people train in. Are there any ashihara, kyokushin, seido karatekas here?

I was taught in Wado-ryu, and have continued to teach, and train in this style. I also work out with kyokushin several times a week, however, I have never converted to kyokushin.

My main style is Wado Ryu. Kyokushin is fairly common around here, but I haven`t tried it.

I train in the Seiei kan style of karate do mainly. It is an offshoot of the Koei Kan style in Japan. I have also trained in Shotokan,(Matsubayashi)Shorin ryu,Shito ryu(Shukokai), kenpo and ABS karate. As well as Jujitsu,and Okinawa Kobudo.
My teaching curriculum is made up of the four major Japanese styles of karate and Okinawan Shorin ryu.
I am currently at godan rank.

Roku-dan in Chito-ryu. I also have trained in Isshin-ryu and have recently went back to working in my first karate style EPAK. I train and assist in American Karate, but it is really TKD with a twist.

Kokusai Shorinji ryu, an off-shoot of Shorinji ryu Renshinkan and currently shodan in it. Haven't really trained in other styles, although I am interested in Okinawan styles. Unfortunately there aren't many to choose from here (only Seibukan and even that isn't available everywhere)

I don't train karate anymore, but I when did, it was in a style that's fairly common were I'm from but that I've never seen discussed in this forum before (although I've never actually looked very hard for it either).

I did Karate-Do Shotokai, I was a brown belt when I decided to move on to other areas of MA.

Do you mind if I ask you a few questions on the Shotokai?
I've been chomping at the bit to ask some questions from someone on the inside of that system...
