My background is Shotokan karate, with lower stances and nowadays more stylised than traditional karate (forgive my over-generalisation).
I have recently been looking at other styles of karate, and was surprised at the difference in Tekki Shodan / Naihanchi between the two styles. Notably in Okinawan karate the kata is performed much higher than in shotokan.
It got me wondering whether a Karate-ka with some kind of mobility issue due to age or injury (perhaps a back injury or knee injury) would do well to switch to Okinawan karate or some other similar style with high stances.
My knowledge of other styles is limited. Am I correct in saying Okinawan karate has all high stances and is better suited for older or less mobile practitioners ?
