“Practice with Shoshin - the heart of the beginner.”
Our style is “Okinawa Goju Ryu”. “Goju Ryu” means “hard- soft style" and
it was developed in Okinawa, now a part of modern Japan. Karate
itself originated in Okinawa. "Karate" means "empty hand".
Shorei-Kan Okinawa Goju-Ryu is a classic and traditional “Karate Do” as
opposed to a “sport karate”.
We have retained the values and techniques of Masters Kanryo
Higashionna, Chojun Miyagi
and Seikichi Toguchi, the founder of Shorei Kan who was a long
time student of the very famous Master Miyagi. Our
resident master or “teacher of teachers” is
Tomoaki Koyabu. Koyabu Shihan was taught
Master Toguchi for over 15 years and came to Vancouver, Canada
in 1972 on Master Toguchi's behalf to bring our style to Canada.
We have a very pure and direct lineage. Koyabu Shihan currently
resides in North Vancouver and continues to teach today.
