About us

Welcome to the home of Okinawan Shorin-ryu Karate in Calgary!

Okinawa is the place where Karate began, before Japan annexed Okinawa and before it became known as Karate. Martial and self defense traditions that had developed over centuries of invasion and occupation combined with Chinese Kung-fu brought by merchants and envoys. Family traditions and the knowledge of the Pechin (warrior scholars) were collected to form the basis of what would become Karate. In 1922, Karate was introduced to Japan which began both the introduction of karate to the world and the division of karate into Japanese and Okinawan streams.

In simple terms, Japanese Karate developed along sport lines while Okinawan Karate has remained focused on self defense.

 

That which is given must be earned

"Nothing is more harmful to the world than a martial art that is not effective in actual self-defense."

Choki Motobu (founder of Motobu-ryu Kempo and notorious Okinawan Karate street-fighter)
