Hello! I'm a Karate addict since 23 years by now. Deep background in Shotokan and, more recently, several years in a knockdown Karate school (similar to Kyokushin). Interested in Okinawa Karate too, especially Naha-te. I like to melt them in my rather personal way. I think about various ryuha as different paths to climb the same great mountain that is Karate... the more you ascend the more paths cross. Not so original metaphore indeed Besides, I have a modest experience in BJJ and I actually attend an MMA gym. Strenght and conditioning coach and co-instructor when it comes to the pure striking side (while, when it is grappling and transitions, I just keep quiet and follow...). Nice to meet you all.
