Total Karate on Karate Fads

Nice post over at Total Karate on Karate Fads.

Having seen all those things come and go I realised the same old art is still sitting there letting the fashions and fads wash over it like waves at the beach.

There is a nice discussion on fads like “pressure points”, “bunkai” and “underlying principles”.

Nice sum up as well

There is no need to “train for this” or “train for that”. Training for itself and for your own purpose is good enough.
