Non-Okinawan or Japanese Masters of Okinawan Karate Video?
got the idea from Tonys thread, lets try and list examples of what we feel is very high level Okinawan Karate, but not from Okinawans or Japanese people.

found these nice examples of kata IMO -
Mariano Melfi Sensei, Argentina - Passai Dai Kata
Indishe Senanayake Sensei, Sri Lanka - Naihanchi Shodan kata
different to how we do them but very nice im sure in their Ryu.

Just to get this going a little lets not make to much of a big deal about the title, Masters & High Level karate is very 'personal',
let's just list some Western karateka presenting nice Okinawan Karate.

Hi Jim. I'll see if I can get some. I can't get YouTube here at work on this computer so it may take a while.One must remember that karate is about thinking. Combat is about thinking. Battles are not won by the weapons that are brought but by the strategies that are employed.

I know there's a few vid's on youtube of Military who train under Okinawan Teachers. I'll probably be posting in about a year or so just so that the forms/tech's to Shobukan can be found easier.Joseph Dunkin
