I can answer historical or technical questions involving most Okinawan/Japanese styles of Karate and Kobujitsu. Also I have made a study of the acupoints and other pressure points and have researched the medical explanations of why they work the way they do. Ask me questions about the neurological implications of pressure point strikes. If I don`t know an answer I will gladly research it.

I can answer general questions on Okinawan karate, Japanese karate, the history of karate and I am well versed on how karate has become corrupted in many countries and why. Much of karate today outside of Okinawa is not an actual martial art as it was developed by the Okinawans, it is a sport, game, kids activity etc. and the content of the training is very different, very corrupted. I am very well versed on the JKA, I am not versed on Tae Kwan Do, Tang Soo Do or the like other than a limited knowledge of their history. If you want honest and frank answers as regards karate as envisioned by the founders, I will be happy to help you as I do not believe any physical activity that describes itself as karate but does not follow the traditions and training methods of Okinawa is karate at all.
