Merger proposal of Techniques[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

I believe that Gyaku zuki, Shita tsuki and Enpi (elbow strike) should be merged into this article they are sparsely sourced but notable techniques rather than delete them it would be better served preserving them by merging them here. Dwanyewest (talk) 00:21, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

I would like to postpone this decision until I have done more sections of this article. If most techniques have an article, I would leave this article just as an overview with links. If most techniques do not have an article, I would add addition text here. jmcw (talk) 10:37, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

The other place I think a merger might be appropriate is List of karate terms. Dwanyewest (talk) 20:25, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

I agree - that list has no strong concept to justify its existence. I think most of the list entry articles could be marked with Category:Japanese martial arts terms and the list article itself deleted. jmcw (talk) 10:05, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
