Wrong statement[edit]

The article states that Choyu created the Motobu-Ryu Karate by combining the martial arts he learned. That's wrong. His younger brother Choki Motobu created Motobu-Ryu Karate (or Nihon Denryu Heiho Motobu Kenpo for long). Choyu was the heir of the family style known as Udundi (palace hand) which is also known as Motobu-Ryu or Motobu-Ryu Udundi. The article about Motobu-ryu puts that clear (though it has some minor errors). So does the Motobu-Ryu website. I will remove the passage for the given reason. -- 93.207.1.36 (talk) 11:46, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
