The Significance of Wankan (Andreas Quast)

An article on the history and significance of Wankan by Andreas Quast: https://ryukyu-bugei.com/?p=9068

I don't practise Wankan or any of it's variations myself but this article struck me as very interesting

A very interesting read! Andreas Quast’s historical pieces are always fascinating and well researched. I really enjoyed this article and got a lot out of it.

Not sure I agree Shotokan’s Wankan should be dropped though. Even if there are questions about it historically, I think there are good things in it practically. Video on my own thoughts below.

All the best,
