Have any of you read the new article in JAMA about a karate style known as Koshin-Ryu?

Any one study the system?

The system looked very connected to it's chinese origins and I believe I read that it might of been one of the original ninjitsu ryus that came over from China.

Looked like good stuff and it was a very interesting article and a bit refershing from the gloss covered crap in black belt that I have been reading of late.

Yes, I read it and it was pretty good--well-written and incisive. You would never find an article like this in BB because it's not an 6-page advertisement for a particular style, which is all BB seems to run nowadays even in their so called "articles". They're really nothing but ads touting the "invincibility" of one style or technique. All pretty silly. It's a slick rag dumbed-down for the masses and I don't bother with it anymore.

JAMA often has quality work, though.
