According to my Okinawan teachers this is "Old Style" Okinawan Karate as taught in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. This is more of a "bujutsu" approach rather than shin-budo.

I wish to gratefully acknowledge the videography of Beverly Gustafson without which portions of this video would not exist.

The footage of me absorbing full power blows is real: http://ryukyuma.blogspot.com/p/semina...

Tuidi techniques are more dangerous than they look and being on the receiving end of this art is usually very painful (and can be a bit scary).

I posted a little about my background in the Ryukyu martial arts on my new blog: http://ryukyuma.blogspot.com/p/my-bac...

Garry Dyson's Heart Sutra mix is used because the understanding that "form is emptiness," (色即是空) and "emptiness is form" (空即是色) lies at the heart of karate.
"since there is no obscuration of mind, there is no fear"
