What is the difference between shotokan karate and Goju-ryu karate?

4th kyu in Meibukan Goju-ryu. The key to what separates Goju from numerous other styles of karate is in its name. "Goju" is made up of the Japanese words "go" (hard), and "ju" (soft), literally meaning hard-soft style karate. Hard refers to the straight/linear closed hand techniques. Soft refers to the more circular open hand techniques. The style is a combination of the two. I find it to have less kicking and more focus on "kata" (forms) than Shotokan. Shotokan was derived in Japan based on Shorin-ryu karate from Okinawa.

Is Karate a Japanese fighting style?

Karate-do originated in Okinawa, which is now a part of Japan, but is a fusion of both Okinawan and Chinese Martial arts techniques. The word Karate literally translates as "Empty Hand" - however, it's origins also translate to "China Hand". Karate, or Karate-do, is one of several Japanese Budo (Martial Way) arts that has many styles. Other Do arts are: Aikido Kendo (Sword) Judo Kyudo (Bow/Mounted Archery) There are many styles of Japanese Karate, as there are many other styles of Korean Karate and the styles of other countries. However, Karate is historically traced to Okinawa and China. Some different styles of Japanese Karate are: Shotokan Shorin-Ryu Isshin-Ryu Goju-Ryu The term "Ryu" comes from "Ryuku", which is the name of the islands of which Okinawa is a part. These are a few of many different Japanese Karate styles, but all are descendants or variations on the original ancient styles. Differences can be in technique, stance, etc., but most Karate forms are similar in nature.

What does the tiger in karate mean?

There are several answers to this, none are correct, none are incorrect Tiger is one of the priamry animals that Shaolin Kung Fu is based on, Karate was derived from Kung Fu The Master text of Shotokan Karate , the artist drew an Tiger on the cover. The reason behind this is unclear, however one of the reasons could be that the term Shoto which is the pen name for Funakoshi the founder of Shotokan, means pine waves, which is a sound made in the pines as wind blows through them, the same sound is made as Tigers stalk through them. The Tiger on this Cover has 30 stripes, which may have represented the 30 kata in Shotokan (including the Teikyoko and Ten No Kata)

Is tae kwon do karate style?

No, not really. Although many people make that incorrect assumption, there are specific reasons why Taekwondo is a unique Korean Martial Art born out of former Korean traditions, and only influenced during a brief period of re-organization by Japanese Karate, Judo, and Aikido. Simply put, Taekwondo was a continuation of earlier Korean training. It was developed during a very precarious time in history when the country of Korea had just emerged from the Japanese occupation of WWII. The many individuals responsible for reviving Korean culture, and opening Martial Art schools worked for several decades to filter through the existing format, and extract that which they believed represented their native traditions, as well as adding to, and combining modern advancements. Since many of the original Taekwondo pioneers had been heavily influenced in their early lives by the oppressive Japanese government, and much of their formal training of record was through Japanese Martial Art systems such as Judo, Aikido, and Karate, many people mistakenly conclude that Taekwondo was born out of Karate. The facts do not support that conclusion. Each of the Taekwondo Kwan (family of schools) founders had been trained in multiple disciplines including Chinese hand fighting (Tangsudo / Tang soo do), and native Korean Subak. Some had exposure in their youth to the native Korean Kicking (Tae Kkyeon) which was not a formalized curriculum as we know the Martial Art schools of today are. Although many of the first, post WWII Kwans were teaching what appeared to be like Japanese Karate, and the term "Karate" or "Korean Karate" was used, this was due to marketing to a public that would not understand what the term "Taekwondo" meant at that time. Using "Karate" in the name was the generic version, and not specifically "Japanese Karate," and did not define the content of the Korean art's curriculum. The Koreans borrowed forms called Kata for training drills, but by the time Taekwondo was named in 1955, and first organized in 1961, the art was assembled and created to be based primarily on the teaching of Tae Kkyeon, Subak, and the Hwarang. Karate merely served as an interim influence where certain aspects of training, and assembling the curriculum were adopted, but did not dictate the core elements of techniques and tactics unique to Taekwondo.
