Hello and welcome to the Shorin Goju Karate web site. We are glad that you have decided to visit us here and we would like to extend an invitation to you to work together with us. Please visit our Opportunities For Study page to find out more about how to easily train and work with our Shorin Goju Family
You will find here some basic information about our style and history. But you do not need to practice our style of karate to use the information on this site and we welcome all ranks and all styles to visit our site and our classes.
You will find that much of our written instructor training material is available on this site and we offer it for the use of all martial artists who wish to become better instructors. Feel free to print out a copy of these articles and essays for your own use. All that we ask is that you do not sell it or publish it or remove the author attribution from it.
You will also find a basic set of forms for martial arts schools and we welcome you to use them for your own schools clubs, classes and programs.
Check back occasionally to find new information that is added from time to time. If you would like more information, or if you have a question that is not answered here on the site please feel free to send me an email. If you are a Goju student or instructor who has lost touch with your Goju family and wish to reconnect with the Goju tradition please contact me. If you are interested in learning Goju or adapting to Goju from another style please contact me. If you are a student or instructor of another style and you wish to avail yourself of our material, support and training while maintaining you own style, contact me.
