Rob Redmond has written about Shotokan karate for many years.
He was the driving force behind the alt.martial.arts.karate.shotokan (AMAKS) newsgroup way back in the day (before the ‘web was used by anybody for anything except experimentation). And later, his Shotokan Planet website was probably the first ‘non-denominational’ shotokan site on the ‘web. It was certainly the biggest and the best. Through his articles and forum posts, Rob was single-handedly responsible for leading the Shotokan world out of the dark ages of dogma and tradition and into the brave new world of individualized karate training. I consider Rob one of the most influential karate experts of modern times.
Today, he blogs at 24FightingChickens.com where he is a leading voice of reason in the karate web-o-sphere.
