neil - how can they call it an All-styles event then? bit like the Americans do this 'world series' stuff that only americans enter

As for the World Series- we'd invite an English baseball team, but you guys would probably bring those mis-shaped cricket bats.

However, I believe that they call themselves WORLD champions in some of their sports because for many from those shores they don't really look beyond their borders, the USA = WORLD.
Just an opinion from a now Welsh nationalised Canadian!
growe wrote:Sorry Kevin I got a bit side-tracked by Fujicolt mentioning the USA baseball. As regards karate, in Dave Hazard's Born Fighter I'm sure he recalls a story of training in a dojo in America where the instructor had a trophy for being world champion. When pressed on it he gave that same explanation - that anyone could enter!
