Style: kyoku-shin, boun-shin
"I was under the impression that shooto didn't allow striking on the ground. Or is that just the shooto tournament rules?"
Some organizations (notably Rings and Pancrase) limited the types of strikes and/or conditions for striking, but I don't think any major shooto organization currently limits striking as a general rule.

I would contradict the fact that TKD doesn't teach you to kick through a target, but maybe that's just because I do ITF TKD and the fact that my teacher doesn't train us competition style.

That could be. Do you kick with your shin or the top of the foot?

For a roundhouse to the floating ribs, I use the shin, because if you use instep and some dude blocks with their elbow, you have a big freaking bruise on your foot that hurts pretty bad. When performing a roundhouse at either the head or the knee, I use instep, for the increased range.
Yesterday at JJ practice, I was trying to see how vulnerable you are for a takedown when you vary kicking range. I came to the conclusion that kicking usually leaves you wide open if you start with one. Also, close range kicking is a no-no. I did find out though, that kicking as a follow up isn't nearly as vulnerable for a takedown and I could land quite a few good ones, including high kicks. Especially when someone is backing up and you have a good threat range because of the roundhouse, it's hard for them to get out of dodge. You have to be fast though.
It doesn't always work, but that's something I've got to work on :)

Where does the groundfighting in shooto come from? I've heard judo but can't remember for sure... I'm interested...
I'm gonna fight, fight, fight, fight, fight and destruct the world.

It's like BJJ, but with no Gi and strikes. I am really not sure where it comes from. Vale Tudo maybe?
Good for power, which is why I try to put a few rounds in a few on them. Heavy bags don't hit back though.

ITF TKD kicks w/ the instep and i don't think they chamber/recoil either.
