Apart from the 'nearly supernatural' nonsense, what this guy's saying about karate-dō is, so far, what I've been taught by actual masters (not that I got much of anywhere, too weak-minded).

Pffffffft, that was such bullshit. "Karate" means "empty-handed", as in fighting w/out weapons.

The 'kara' was changed by Funakoshi Gichin from 唐 ('Tang dynasty China') to 空 ('empty') c.1920 when he moved from Okinawa to Japan (an Okinawan-descended person who worked on "Adventure Time" suggested, àn explanation of some broken Japanese in one episode, that one think of Ireland vs England to get a fkavour of the difference and relationship). Funakoshi, after a little youthful rebellion, decided to get with the programme, that being a modernised Greater Japan with little room for {ancient Chinese}-sounding stuff…also, he didn't do weapons teaching in Japan as far as I know, even though that was pretty often seamlessly added in Okinawa. Sorry to data-dump.

@Cliff in Prague:
Jack Seward, an occupying U.S. Army guy who married-in and stayed, wrote that he really wanted to write a primer titled "Japanese in Twenty Difficult Years". They started training him and many others in early 1942, language and culture, with 'reducing my chances of getting shot-at by being kept in reserve' as the incentive. C.2004 I often thought of that, as in `_That_'s how you do an occupation. '.

Hard external (nominally) linear style or flowing internal harmonising, hardass Japanese instruction is hardass Japanese instruction. My guess is that strip-mall belt-mills are a little different, but my instinct is that they're the Trump University of martial arts instruction.

And it's pronounced 'sh[u]toh', Funakoshi never claimed to have invented it, and he derided people who said it could pierce flesh.

In a transition to fascism, it's generally a good idea to get hit early on, it convinces you _viscerally_ that it's time to fight, knuckle-under, or get the fuck out. (All work or don't, to various degrees, and my guess is that American fascism would be closer to Italian, murderously racist but genocidally so only abroad, at home it'd 'only' be police abuse times ten without even the fig-leaf of redress, all Latinos treated like illegals…Asians and Deshi allowed some whiteness if they're useful enough, ditto Jews not related to Huge Leader. And, of course,
