    A single anomoly does not a trend make. When we start seeing more shotokan karateka as contenders in MMA, you may have something.

    Fair point. Certainly I suspect we'll see a few more shotokaners having a go now.

    Too bad I couldn't miss this thread the second time around.

    Before I say anything else, to be clear, am I correct that people in this thread are disputing the value of the style itself and not just some people's whack training methods?

    While not impossible to find good karate of any style there's more shti than good with the exceptions of styles like KK that have used a hard contact competition style to keep things honest

    HIs stance, in my observation, is exactly like dozens of Brazilian fighters I have seen who have no karate background. His mawashi-geri is classic Muay Thai. The only thing I can really say is classic karate is his timing and positioning. He rarely, if ever just blitzs someone until they have made a mistake, which reminds me of Chuck Liddel and his Kempo. Both fighters are not exciting. Just effective.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer.

    Gracie JJ is different from Japanese JJ because its lineage comes through Judo you tard, the differences have nothing to do with nice beaches and a giant statue of Jesus...
