    Still different, though I admit the link to kata.

    Thanks. I had to google all the Japanese terms excluded bunkai, as I didn't know them.
    What is "ude tante"? Unfortunately when I try to google it Google searches for "nude tante" (italian for many naked [women]) so I can't find any useful reference.

    Google gives you a bunch of naked Italian women and it's not a useful reference?!

    googled kaki-e karate and found this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzPErd8FXyw Which was really intereseting. I didn't realise the grappling elements of karate were formally encoded anywhere.

    Shotokan Karate
    I did Shotokan whilst in high school back when it was still NASKA.

    It gave me my technical hunger for always learning to become better at everything I do in martial arts and work.

    I was impressed at the standards of instruction throughout the organisation all the way back to Japan. (at the time there was only ONE person newly allowed to provide black belt testing in all of Canada, Francois Sensai)

    To be fair, my personal experience may also have been spoiled with Shotokan in incredible technical learning for the all too short time I was there from First white guy to win the JKA Cup.

    IMO, anything with the NASKA (or I guess its SKA now) stamp is basically like having a BBB A+, if the BBB wasnt mostly got garbage.

    SKA = connected to a stringent organisation with high standard for what's allowed in instructors or for progression to the Dan ranks.

    No SKA stamp on shotokan = Bob's backyard black belt linen factory.
