Hi, hope you don't mind me chipping in, but my thought is that Wado Ryu has always sailed under the 'Karate-Do' flag of convenience. It is neither fish nor fowl.

Neither fish nor fowl but much more than either combined has the makings of a banquet for the chef de cuisine Tim

Except that this label also argues a 'finite' position in the same way the 'karate' label does TK.

Whereas "much more than either combined has the makings of a banquet for the chef de cuisine " speaks more for the practitioner's 'infinite potential', a concept that I feel engenders release from a fixed mind.

Two truths are told, I suppose ....this all reminds me of an old Sinatra song:

You must remember this
A fish is still a fish
A sigh is still (just) a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by

Ah the sweet languor of Sinatra’s trilling syrup which is, much like his hair line, potentially entirely illusory.


It is a simple choice: Wado or doo bee doo bee doo.

I was recently at a course with Shiomitsu sensei and one point he made which really stuck in mind was that Wado is 90% jujitsu, if not more. The katas we have may be okinawan in origin but the way we perform them is to practice budo movement. At least that was my understanding ot it.

90? Hyperbole perhaps?
