    Default Listing of Okinawan Karate Ryuha

    Gentlemen and Ladies:

    I am assisting one of my student who decided to undertake a long term project. So far this is what we both found. The criteria is really simple. This "art" must be established in Okinawa pre-war or post war. if the art was established or founded outside of Okinawa, it does not count. What we are looking for is the Name and the Founder's Name and tyhe current status ( Active, Renamed or Defunct)

    Hi Prince; I do not know if I would really call Shorei Kan a style. It was the name of Toguchi Sensei's Dojo, where he taught Goju Ryu.
    Though, he did create Two Fukyu Kata(Unrelated to Nagamine's), Gekiha, & Kakuha, along with Hakutsuru No Mai. He taught these kata in addition to the 12 Goju Kata.

    Thanks David , That's why I need all the help I can get. This is a valuable information. I'll take this off the list.

    Hi David !

    I wanted to add that, but someone ( can't remember the name offhand) told me that Toyama Sensei did not intend for the Shudokan as a ryu or style. Am I wrong to assumed this ? This confuses me.

    One more thing to add, if the Shudokan is a style, should this be in the Japanese Karate ryuha section ?

    Thanks

    Oyata Shin Shu Ho Ryu - Founded by Taika Seiyu Oyata [Active]

    This is Taika Oyata's "Family" art, whereas Ryu Te is his "Public" art.

    Is this art taught by anyone in Okinawa still? Was it founded there, or founded here in the US, after he moved here?
    Prince, I'm still not sure about Shudokan either. I can tell you that Kanken Toyama is profiled in Nakamoto Masahiro Sensei's new book. A book where he profiles 39 Shuri Te, & Kobudo Sensei.
