Re: kata dori vs. katate dori

To respond to Mike Sigman:

Actually, the ki character at the top of this page is NOT generally used in Japan today. Nor is it used in China. The character you see (above) is the old version. Both Japanese and Chinese use two different new versions - confusing huh? Only Korea uses the old original version (as above), except that, they rarely use kanji (hanja) in their writing these days.

PS Not sure about Taiwan - they probably use the old version too.
