History


Over the ages, many martial art forms developed on the islands of the Ryukyu archipelago.


Master Kanyro Higashionna is credited with the development and formalization of the art of open-handed combat that today we call karate.


One of his top students, Master Chojun Miyagi, was the founder of Goju Ryu.  In turn, master Masanobu Shinjo devoted much of his martial arts career to the study of Miyagi’s teachings, and established the Shobukan federation that we are affiliated with.


Shinko and Shinpo Matayoshi developed a

complex weapons fighting system that has been incorporated into Shobukan along with the ancient grappling art of Jujitsu.
