Who's Goju-Ryu for?

Goju-Ryu lends itself to everyone in that it seeks out the innate talents of its students, and plays off of those strengths. This traditional style of karate was founded by Kanryo Higaonna, and is distinctive in that it has remained largely unchanged from its original Chinese combative roots.

What is it about?

As with all forms of karate, Goju-Ryu is founded upon the principles of self-defense. GO (meaning "hard") is developed to bring out the fierce warrior in all of us. JU (meaning "soft") finds the fluid, circular motions necessary to combat multiple attackers.

As skills develop, traditional weapons are introduced. Bo, Bokken, Tonfa, Sai, Escrima, Kamas, Nunchuka are all studied under careful supervision, to be mastered and/or adapted so that anything can become your weapon if attacked.

What are the benefits?

Discipline, confidence, calm and fitness are just a few of the MANY benefits acquired from the study of Goju Ryu. At Tamashi`No Ken (meaning "Sword of the Soul") we bring that power, that confidence, that surety, that calm, to your mind and body as you journey down the sacred traditional path of the Okinawan warrior. Join us today - we want to be there with you as you journey through the exciting discovery of mind and body. 

A JOURNEY OF A THOUSAND MILES BEGINS....
