I'm curious how this style is different from Shotokan Karate.

Shorin ryu uses the Okinawan names for the katas. And the stances are much higher. More is similar than different however. They both stress equal use of hands and feet.

In his book Nagamine credits one of Funakoshi's books with giving him the determination to stay involved in the training of the martial arts. He worked in the police department. And trained many Okinawan police in the martial arts.

Shoshin Nagamines book is called The Essence of Okinawan Karate-Do. I found it a very useful tool for practicing Kata and also used the link http://www.shorinryu.dk. The boog Nagamine mentions was Karate-Do kyohan by Gichin Funakoshi.

Most styles of karate are not that different. Different katas and moves might be done quicker or slower and with more or less concentration/power.

Just to clerify Shorin ryu is Okinawan and Shotogan is Japanese. I have read the book The Essence oF book and the only Karate Men Shoshin Nagamine credits for his trianing are Arakichi Arakaki, Chotoku Kyan and Choki Motobu. Shotogan Karate is based on Shorinryu. Gichin Funakoshi has been credited for the first book Karate Do Kyohan. Many Karate Men that lift Okinawa Renamed there styles.

In Funakoshi's autobiography you will read that Shotokan came from Shuri te (including Tomari Te) and Naha te.

Its a mix of both schools. You will see some of the Nahe schools forms in Shotokan at an advanced level, albeit somewhat modified

Okinawan Karate has ALOT of grappling in it. These are not basic attacks, however. You learn them in the advanced kata's. They are not obvios, but you see kata's aplication if you use your noodle.

Shorin-Ryu is the Okinawan style that descends from earlier Shuri-Te and Tomari-Te.

Gichin Funakoshi could be said to have studied Shorin-Ryu under Itosu and Azato.

Later, when he went to Japan, he modified a lot of his art, in particular renaming and reordering katas, as well as changing and simplifying many moves.

This new Japanese style taught by Funakoshi in the Shoto-Kan (waving pines hall), became known, not suprisingly, as "Shotokan" style.

Note that Funakoshi himself opposed giving karate a multitude of stylistic names. He believed karate-do should just be karate-do.
