That would be Choki style Karate, developed by a contemporary of Gichin Funakoshi, Motobu Choki. Many Japanese familiar with the Choki style, in fact consider it more practical than Shotokan, since its movements are not as expansive, and the Kata emphasize simplicity and efficiency rather than "showy" and "big" motions. It may be of interest to you, that Choki was a street brawler, and he had the same mentality as Bruce Lee; Motobu Choki felt that most Okinawan Karate "did not work on the street" so he developed his own out of his own street brawling experiences. Long before Masatatsu Oyama and his Kyokshin, there was Motobu Choki.

Numbers never end, therefore there is no smallest number only smaller than the last.But it depends on the number system that you are defining, and what you mean by smallest - is is smallest magnitude, or a number which everything else is greater than it. For example, if you are dealing with natural numbers [counting numbers: 1,2,3...], then there is a smallest number, which is 1. If you're dealing with integers, and you mean smallest magnitude, then zero would be your number, but all of the negative integers are less than zero. What if your system is 8-bit signed binary numbers (so the range is -128 to +127). So you need to be specific about what you are looking for.
