    I have been thinking about this and I think it would be a cool addition to UO. We already have Bushido and Ninjitsu so why not karate? It would complement both of those skills nicely. The real reason though is I just want to boot some head too!

    As long as every karate move is animated as a sloppy roundhouse punch. Otherwise too much new artwork. lol

    Well we'd still need animation for kick so there's that, unless you got an idea.

    Sosaria has had spaceships... so I think ninjitsu isn't too far out.

    Basically what Wrestling is. Hopefully they add in more stuff like the Bracers of Alchemical Devastation to enhance Wrestling.

    Not a new skill, but a combination of Bushido and Wrestling. I really think UO should take advantage of the multitude of skill combinations they could have and provide subsets based on those combination. For instance, wrestling and bushido gives you martial arts Skills. Magery and Healing gives you better proficiency in healing spells and skills. Etc.

    let's clean up the useless skills we already have before adding another.

    Developer resources already too thin to add something that would likely be similar to wrestling and only sparsely used.

    Instead of adding karate, we should just be given fist weapons such as brass knuckles or some type of gauntlet. I would like to have a martial artist that does much more than 'slap' a target for 1-4 hp damage.
