All In The Name

For many of us the names of karate techniques have had a confusing journey. This is especially true for martial artists from the US. Depending on where we were trained and what our lineage happens to be, we could have had a strong or weak translation of  stances, strikes, blocks, and kata. 

Over the next few weeks I will attempt to bring a bit of clarity to the nomenclature of Goju technique and kata. I am working on a few diagram type visuals to assist in these definitions. Look for a post soon.
