    KSM,
    Welcome back...
    What do YOU see in each youtube video?
    Please post your critique of each individual video, pointing out flaws, erroneous techniques etc as applies to shotokai.
    Number them 1-12 for easy reference.
    After you've done that, perhaps email the shotokai chaps so they can come on here and defend their technical abilities based on your critique.
    Cheers.

    This is as good a place as any to start a discussion on the specifics of what is being taught by Harada.

    i thought posting links with no explanation was a bannable offense.

    To be fair, he posted this in another thread. It was I who created this thread. So, if anyone should be banned for creating a thread with links and no explanations, it should be me.


    KirkSpockMcCoy's explanation is "Res ipsa loquitor" - which translates as "OMFG I can't stand these guys. LOL at their Karate!"

    I didn't ask what I saw... I asked what you saw... I asked for a critique based on your knowledge of shotokai techniques.

    BTW, how about the no touch knockout vid? Comments? Happy?
    Was that a no-touch knockout?

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    I didn't have the volume up: I was at work...
    He could have been saying : At this distance, if I throw a punch, this will not happen (cue falling over shotokai guy)...:icon_shak

    Sorry, I was being obtuse for KirkSpockMcoy...
