    Generally when people say condition in karate they mean body conditioning, as in condtioning your body to take hits, by hitting you and conditioning your body to hit pepole, by hitting things, makiwara, heavy bags etc.

    Well, you're either a Shotokan, or a Shotokan't.

    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Many people in the organization I belong to started out in Shotokan. They are usually pretty good. I think the type a training they got was mostly Kihon training. But they didn't have any one to help them learn to "connect the dot" with regard to bunki.

    No, I am not saying Shotokan sucks or anything of the sort. Or that they "graduated" to the system I'm in.

    You have to learn to "work-out" and ingrain these into natural movement. It helps if you have some one to show you the "higher level stuff". And not have to figure it out on your own.
    People often tell me that I fail to see the gravity of the situation.
    I see the gravity, and I say...

    Step right up folks and watch me defy gravity!
