Welcome to the Visitors pages!
Firstly for those who are curious about our traditional lineage....
We are of the Goju Ryu karate tradition which, for those more familiar with movies, is the same Karate tradition as the original 'Karate Kid' movie.
All Kin Shin Kai Grading certifications are thus awarded in 'Goju Ryu Karate'.
Our major direct connection to this Goju ryu tradition is via the Goju Kensha system of the late master Ohtsuka Tadahiko.
We also integrate skills, strategies & principles from other sources into our system as did he.
