About 4 Style of Okinawa Karate

1. Shorin-Ryu Karate 

Shorin (小林) -Ryu is one of the major modern Okinawa styles of karate and one of the oldest style. It was named by Choshin Chibana (Chosin Chibana was a top student of the great master of Shuri-te, Anko Itosu) in 1933, but the system itself is much older. The characters Shorin (小林), meaning "small" and "forest" respectively and pronounced "shorin" in Japanese, are also used in the Chinese and Japanese words for Shaolin Kung Fu. Shorin-Ryu adjusts elements of the traditional fighting styles of Shuri-Te. Shorin ryu karate is the swift, fast techniques based on the strategy of evasion and in the same time attacking to sensitive spots of the body with hits.


2. Goju-Ryu Karate 

Goju-Ryu is one of the main traditional style of Okinawa karate, featuring a combination of hard and soft techniques. Kanryo Higaonna was known as the highest authority of Naha Te. He and his successor Chojun Miyagi (1888-1953) made several basics. Go means hard, refers to closed hand techniques or straight linear attacks, Ju means soft, refers to open hand techniques and circular movements. Goju-Ryu incorporates both circular and linear movements into its basic method, combining hard striking attacks such as kicks and close hand punches with softer open hand circular techniques for attacking, blocking, and controlling the opponent, including locks, grappling, takedowns, and throws. Breathing method is also very important.

3. Uechi-Ryu Karate  

Uechi-Ryu (上地流) is a traditional style of Okinawan karate. Uechi-ryu means "Style of Uechi". Originally called Pangai-noon, which translates to English as "half-hard, half-soft", the style was renamed Uechi-ryu after the founder of the style, Kanbun Uechi. Uechi-Ryu's connection with Chinese Shorin-ken means the former shares a similar foundation with Naha-Te despite their separate development. Therefore Uechi-Ryu is also heavily influenced by the kung fu from Fujian province. Uechi-ryu training styles are focused only on Sanchin training and body conditioning.

4. Kobudo (Okinawa style of Weapon)

Kobudo is a term that can be translated as “ancient martial way”. We offer instruction in Ryukyu Kobudo, the weapons martial art of Okinawa.
