We teach only one martial art -- Shōrin-ryū!

Last updated: June 22 2022 17:01:10.

Shōrin-ryū (少林流) is one of the major modern Okinawan martial arts and is one of the oldest styles of karate. It was named by Choshin Chibana in 1933, but the system itself is much older. The characters 少林, meaning "sparse" or "scanty" and "forest" respectively and pronounced "shōrin" in Japanese, are also used in the Chinese and Japanese words for "Shaolin". "Ryū" means "school". Shōrin-ryū combines elements of the traditional Okinawan fighting styles of Shuri-te. Shōrin-ryū a complete system of self defense. Shōrin-ryū includes: punching; kicking, striking; deflecting; ground fighting; joint locking; sweeps; throws; take-downs; and, 13+ weapons. More information available at Wikipedia.com.
