Yemenite Charedi-ism

So I had an interesting experience. I had a tzav rishon (your first meeting with the army in Israel), and during their waiting around I spoke with a Yemenite charedi guy who came to get an exemption from the army.

He looks like an Ashkenazi chassid (in terms of dress and peyot) and basically has the same ideas, chadash assur etc.

How did these ideas of the chatam soffer develop simultaneously in Yemen? How come they’re so similar on very specific issues ?
