Shorin-Ryu Karate

Shorin-Ryu Karate is a traditional martial art that originated in Okinawa, Japan, in the mid-18th century. Okinawa is the birthplace of Karate. Its original students were from the noble houses in Okinawa, then the independent kingdom of Ryukyu. Shorin-Ryu combined the native Okinawan martial arts with Chinese martial arts. Its name, Shorin-Ryu comes from the Okinawan pronunciation of Shaolin. This style predates most modern martial arts.

Today, Shorin-Ryu Karate incorporates the classic traditional forms and techniques while incorporating the best and most useful of the new.
