ABOUT GOJU-RYU KARATE-DO

„_—¬‹σŽθ‚Μ‹NŒΉ

In Okinawa, at the beginning of the twentieth century, Karate was taught by the name of the city, such as Shuri Žρ—’, Naha “ί”e, and Tomari ”‘. Today both Naha-te “ί”eŽθ and Shuri-te Žρ—’Žθ are the original features of various schools of Karate. The main distinction between these two is that, in general Naha-te emphasizes flexibility in dynamic movement; Shuri-te emphasizes speed in rational movement.

Master Soshu MatsumuraCΌ‘Ί@G i1796-1893) in Shuri and Master Kanryo HigaonnaC“Œ‰Ά”[ Š°—Κ (1853-1915) in Naha were the most distinguished authorities in the early period. Master Chojun MiyagiC‹{ι’·‡ (1888-1953) was a successor of Naha-te and later named his style of art Goju-Ryu „_—¬ (hard and soft.) It was 1929 that Master Miyagi was invited by Gogen Yamaguchi who was then founder and chief instructor of Ritsumeikan —§–½ŠΩ ‘εŠw University Karate Club in Kyoto, Japan. Master Yamaguchi became the successor of Goju-Ryu Karate school in Japan.
