    I'd be suprised if it outnumbered the Japanese "big 4" of shoto, wado, goju, ****o.

    No offense taken, this is simply the "accepted" quote provided by a lot of Isshinryu practitioners.

    Simply put, Isshinryu is very new and it is the most practiced style by Marines of that era but as today it is NOT the most popular.

    I should have reviewed it before I posted to make sure that it was a bit more accurate.

    Regardless, everyone wants to think their style or system is the best or the most practiced but in reality it is never so...so, no offense taken, you are correct to point it out.

    I have modified the quoted text to cut it out. :rolleyes:

    Jumper. I studied non-classical Shorin-Ryu under Peter Williams in Toowoomba. Since it closed I moved onto Parkour and Tricking, which has led me to incorporate some kicks from Chinese arts that are used in tricking into my repertoire.

    Alright, after having quit TKD I yesterday officially joined a karate school after having trained there for a couple of weeks.
    It's a IOGKF school with 30 members or something, and I can't really say whether it's a good or bad school for I don't really know the style yet. But After checking some schools what they do comes closest to my views of martial art, so I gave it a try and now I'm in.

    So bonjour, karatekas, my name is Kuto, I do Goju Ryu and I'm a white belt once again!

    Hey guys,

    I started training at the local kyokushin dojo to complement the judo I'm currently doing. It was a great class so expect many more posts full of n00b questions (I'm looking at you, Kuma :p)

    Hope the training's going well Timmy Boy! Who is the sensei? Has the club got a website?

    Well I've literally only just started and I can only make it once per week due to judo on Tuesdays, but it's Shihan Stuart Wright's club in Chelmsford - www.chelmsforddojo.com - and it seems like a good club.
