    Shorin ryu has katas with similar names to the Shotokan kata I was taught. Goju is different. I don't know if the Shorin kata are actually the same as the shotokan ones because I've never studied Shorin ryu,

    I know shotokan has similar kata alright but they're named and performed very differently.

    Don't know about the other forms but I'm pretty sure that first kata she did wasn't Shotokan

    Wow, and that's one of my favourites (though admittedly not one that I practiced very often) I thought her form was just bad but it is, in fact, terrible.

    EDIT: If anyone is curious, this is what that kata should look like:

    or this:

    The real tragedy is going to be when she grows up if she ever gets into a situation where she could defend herself or run and decides to throw her chips in with her 4 blackbelts she got when she was ten. Otherwise, who cares how old she is? If she did the work required for the belt to the standards of the testers who are we to say she doesn't deserve it? Quite often, black belt != martial arts badass.

    Also on her teaching class, wtf is up with that?
