Just a hypothetical question and discussion.
I started this chat on the SRKlive channel, and left before a conclusion was made, if it was ever reached.
So i ask you the Sagat board, do you consider The King a shoto?
Points for him being a shoto were fireball and a DP, however he lacks a tatsu.
Points against him being a shoto were the lack of tatsu, and it being replaced by tiger knee. The low variation on the fireball.
Involved in the argument was also whether or not Dan Hibiki would also be considered a shoto due to the Dan kicks not being a tatsu?
So if anyone wants to contribute points for the argument I’m just curious as how others see him, even though in the end it doesn’t really matter.
