View Full Version : Shotokan Hierarchy

4th September 2006, 09:01
I'm preparing for a meeting of sorts with an individual I've been interacting with for quite some time. In order to be properly prepared, I need to track down some very specific information with which to refute any possible claims this person will/may make.

Toward that end, can anyone point me toward listings of the senior-most karateka in the Shotokan lineages?

I hope you'll get better answers than this, but--in order of convenience--you might try--


$75 + postage

$55 + postage

Don't know of anything written since the breakup, but I don't follow it closely anymore either.

Good luck. Maybe you could post your results here when you've done your research...

Have you looked at shotokanworld.com ? The JKA and its many offshoots are listed there, although Shotokan-ryu historically unaffiliated with the JKA are not represented.

Still doing my searching...

I've visited, and emailed, several organizations.

Has anyone heard about the "United States Shotokan Federation?" Or, better yet, how about a Shotokan instructor under that association named Lee Rang Chung?
