Goju-Ryu Karate-Do was developed by Chojun Miyagi in the Okinawan Islands of Japan. Our Karate-Do program was further developed by Dan Taylor after training with several Goju-Ryu Karate-Do instructors world-wide. Goju-Ryu means the Hard-Soft Style and refers to the softness of blocking and the hardness of counter striking. Goju-Ryu uses blocks, strikes, kicks, throws, & submissions, using both linear & lateral movements. Grading is awarded only by merit after rigorous training and examinations. Our Karate-Do program has been certified by the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai in Japan.
