About Us

Goju-ryu, translated means, the hard, soft system. It is an art which combines Chinese and Japanese martial arts principles. The circular blocks are considered the soft (ju) of GOJU and the hard (go) principles are the linear strikes. The Goju style of breathing stimulates the development of ki energy while the conditioning exercises develope the physical strength of the student. The combined elements of GOJU RYU create a complete fighting sytem that contains stikes, blocks,locks and throws.

Goju-Ryu kata contain powerful techniques which are not suited for sport karate. We practice these techniques carefully as bunkai oyo. We seperate the traditional techniques from the sport to compete in occasional tounaments. Our emphasis however is on the traditional Karate.
