The area, formerly United States military housing, was released to Okinawa inbut major development only began in the mids. Omoromachi Station is attached directly to an upscale shopping mall; another mall, Naha Main Place, a few hundred meters down the street, contains many upscale Western-brand fashion boutiques, with restaurants and other shops. Frequented by young people, the area boasts large stores such as Toys R Us and Best Denki an electronics storea co-op market, many restaurants and a movie theater.
But a long time ago, rural Okinawa was a very dangerous place. Most thugs carried weapons. Therefore, old-school Karate masters were also masters of Kobudo.
Like Nakamoto Masahiro, 10th dan Okinawan Kobudo, once told me after we finished training in his dojo: Some of my favorites are: You strike it with your forearms, fingers and elbows almost like a Thesis on karate but also with your legs, to condition your shins.

These things are rarely taught in regular Japanese Karate classes.
Because, again, Japanese Karate was heavily influenced by pre-existing martial traditions when it was introduced from Okinawa. Try it and you will see. Japanese Karate, on the other hand, was tailored for huge groups.
Because that was the goal when Karate was introduced to the various universities around Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto in the middle of the 20th century. In fact, the average Okinawan dojo has room for like people. This spartan training environment actually adds to the focus of individualization over mass instruction.
Okinawan Karate has its own language. Some other popular ones are: This language is still used by traditional masters in Okinawa. What did he mean? This goes to show that Uchinaa-guchi is still very much alive today.
What do you think? Personally, I try to mix the best of both. Last summer I met Hasegawa Yukimitsu in Okinawa. Read our exclusive interview here. In Okinawa, you are never afraid of anyone in the dojo!
