Well, since I am 20 right now, and have been training since I was 3, I have been training (though I don't really know how serious you "train" when you are 3) for 17 years in total. B)

I have the idea that many people start Karate-jutsu, but end up with Karate-do - meaning that in the beginning they want to learn self-defense, fighting etc (-jutsu), but in the end they realize that Karate is more than that (-do).

And to truly understand the "-do" aspect of Karate, I think it's almost necessary that you begin with the "-jutsu".

That's true, and yes, I generalized/simplified a lot. ;)

Examples are Shindo Jinen (Shizen) Ryu and Kushin Ryu, two "Japanese" styles that never became as popular as Shito/Wado/Shoto/Goju, mainly becauser they weren't interested in competing, but also because they wouldn't write popular books about their style.

Yeah, that's a good one. Reminds me of one of my sensei in Okinawa, who constantly would hit walls, doors, fences, buildings etc, when we were out walking!
