    I remember 15 years ago. I was 5. I really liked that show "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles". They donīt make cartoons like that any more.

    original purpose of the "chamber" in karate. As told to us by the likes of Gichin Funakoshi (founder of Shotokan) in his writings, as well as several of his contemporaries.
    1. grab a opponent (clothes or whatever you can get a hold of)
    2. as you punch with the other hand, you pull the grabbing hand back -preventing the opponent from moving away from your punch. You may pull him downward to break his balance a bit better.

    No one ever used formal chambering in a free sparring (especially in full contact karate like kyokushin), and anyone thinking karate guys actually do that obviously have no experience above first lesson level of formal training.
    Its a training tool. usually misunderstood but still only a training tool.
    Using it as a benchmark of what is, and what is not, a "karate punch" is simply weird.

    Thanks, Kolsyrade. We did cover the 'grab' thing earlier in the thread, but thanks. OSU!

    Great read. Thank you. It's always good to see Karate gets some good light. There's still some good schools out there.
