Interesting Article covering the origins of Okinawan Karate

Hi All

Just came across this on another forum, it's  an interesting article questioning some assumptions about the origins of Karate in Okinawa. Thought it might peak some interest and discussion over here.

Hi Th0mas

That was an enjoyable read, thanks for sharing.

As I'm in the long process of studying  the Aragaki version of Seisan  I always find references to the particular individual interesting.  Unfortunately,  as in many of the instances regarding the history of karate there is seldom any "new" information out there. 

Nevertheless,  it's still always interesting to re-read this stuff, the reference to how Mabuni might have passed on his karate is fascinating to consider,  as is the potential Shaolin link to Wanshu.
