    I think (and I may too be wrong) that the red and white blocked is for 8th dan and upwards in Shorinkan Shorin Ryu. Although it might be 6th.

    As an aside, who decides whether something is "legitimate" or not?
    Usually the people who have tracable lineages , and certifications. Make up your own shitty karate because you're douchebag, and you're not legitimate. Simple enough.

    Take your Sensei Frank Rhinds. A whole page of "history" with not a single verifiable fact on it. Which competetions did he compete in? Which ones did he come first in? Who has he represented england for?

    Lol, loving how he cant even spell Kobudo properly, or grasp what it actually is.

    Im not saying he's guilty of anything more than the usual krotty bollocks, im just highlighting how things can be legitimate.

    Fair enough. I'd guess the red and white blocked belt could claim some legitimacy then - the head of the school's a 93yo Okinawan bloke who trained under, and started the school with Choisin Chibana.

    But thats just the thing, he isnt the head of the school, he's the founder of the organisation. He has **** all to do with your school.

    So, erm, I'm not sure what your point is.

    Is he allowed to decide who can or cannot wear a red and white blocked belt, or is he not "legitimate" enough?

    and yes, I'm quite happy to accept that he's probably never been to the idyllic suburb of Clifton, Nottingham.

    As a matter of interest do you have any idea how old that tradition is within this school of Karate ?

    correct. Shorin Ryu uses the candy cane belt.

    The point im making is , you've provided him as an example of something that legitimises your school. Im saying he doesnt.

    Now if your instructor could prove half the **** he claims, that would legitimise your club.

    The organization is a legitimate organization and Shorin Ryu lineage appears clearly established. While the standards vary from place to place, I have had the opportunity to train at a Shorin Ryu place here in Northern California and found it them to be, hands down, some of the most dangerous dudes around.

    yes they spend a lot of time on pressure points and hocus pocus and kata, but they coupled that with hardcore, very physical, live training. They kicked the **** out of me. One belt test I left with a bruise that was literally a foot long and six inches in diameter on my left leg. It was awesome. I was totally defeated.

    Standards vary from place to place but my experience of this place is that this is quite posssibly karate. Not krotty.

    I don't I'm afraid. I'd guess Nakazato's used that system since he started the school. Whether it's something that was passed on from Chibana or not I couldn't honestly tell you.

    straw man tbf. I haven't once tried to "legitimise my school". I'm not really sure I should have to, should I?

    see above
