I thought that Shotokan meant 'house of pine waves.'


Shoto is actually the meaning you're thinking about. It's actually more of the sound the wind makes when it moves through the trees. Shotokan is the house where it resides.

Hmm. That is odd. I just read that yesterday and I thought it was interesting so I posted. Turns out, my book a different interpretation. Bah!


I read that somewhere as well Syphax.

Did you know that Chuck Norris doesn't bowl strikes, he just knocks down one pin and the other nine faint. sorry wanted to reply to Syphax but didn't have a fact.

I had always heard Mas Oyama's real name was Yung I Choi. Perhaps that is wrong. Here's one, a blood groove is misnamed. The groove is to lighten the sword while maintaining strength not to allow you to remove it from the suction of the body. Another is the first site of martial arts in a big budget American film was James Cagney doing Judo in Blood on the Sun.
