All four Shihan's, trained with Master Kimura for at least 25 years, and continue to teach and develop Master Kimura's unique technique.

The KSI is the official World Governing body for Kimura Shukokai Karate.

Today Kimura Shukokai International is continuing to grow, and spread its wings to many different countries around the world including Europe, North America, Africa & Asia.

History Of Shukokai:

KARATE literally means "empty hand" and karate-do "the way of the empty hand" which is a method of fighting without the use of weapons. Karate was developed on islands of Okinawa, the main island of the Ryu Kyu archipelago which lies in the east China Sea between China and Japan.

In 1609 a newly unified Japan invaded Okinawa and crushed all resistance. The Japanese victors then imposed a ban on all but their own warrior elite on the carrying of weapons. As a result the people of the island developed a system of unarmed fighting from which present day Karate has evolved. Alongside the practice of unarmed fighting skills, the people of Okinawa perfected various weapon systems based on the combative use of everyday implements such as rice fails, grind stone handles and sickles. Even the humble walking staff became a deadly weapon in the hands of an expert. All of these systems have survived to the present day and are practised in Dojos (training halls) throughout the world.
