    Yes, the Shorinkan is pretty relaxed on what can be taught by its member schools, so long as the curriculum includes the standard Shorinkan kata and yakusoku kumite sets. My instructor has experience with a few styles of martial arts, so we have a well blended curriculum as well. It's a great way to be introduced to new ideas!

    Matsubayashi was my first system. Still love it.

    Hi I train Goju Ryu in Spain, but I met some practitioners of the same group I belong in New yourk. I think you may like their dojo. I canīt post a link, as I am new in the forum, but if you type Staten island jundokan in google it will appear first. Is called Koketsu dojo.

    All my best

    This is very good information. I too have recently decided to completely divorce myself from shotokan (been separated for over a year now) due to issues it was causing with my hips and lower back. It's good to know that some traditional forms might be easier on my body, should I someday decide to go back to a traditional art. Thanks everyone for posting.
