Shorinjiryu Karate is a style of karate founded by Kori Hisataka (Seiki Kudaka in Okinawan) (1907–1988) shortly after World War II in Japan. The primary arts of Shorinjiryu Okinawan karate and Okinawan Kobudo, as taught to the founder by masters including Chotoku Kyan and Sanda Kanagusuku, as well as Judo, which Kori Hisataka studied at the Kodokan, obtaining the rank of 4th Dan after only 1 years training.
Other component arts include Judo, Aikijutsu and Chinese Bajiquan, which the founder studied on his extensive tours of Japan, China and Asia.
This dojo is a place where humility, honour integrity and other old world values such as personal development and discipline are developed and encouraged.
Seishinjuku Karate Dojo is a great place to learn and practice an authentic martial art.
I thoroughly enjoy training under the guidance of Sensei Jason and would recommend karate to anyone looking to improve their fitness/agility, knowledge of martial arts/self defence, and self respect/confidence.
