I found this question on Yahoo Answers Japan (chiebukuro), and one of the posters gave an example based on what they thought the question meant.
For those who know Japanese, here’s the question: http://detail.chiebukuro.yahoo.co.jp/qa/question_detail/q1359775243
I like mrjunkhonten’s answer. It’s worth a read.
Anyway, here’s the video the contributor posted:
The title reads Super Karate Girl… though I beg to differ.
My question here is what purpose, if any, could a “Karate Dance” ever serve? There seemed to be very little for application in the video, but there is still some there howbeit on a minuscule scale.
Does this sort of thing hurt the appeal of Karate? Is there any purpose for it?
