Gojuryu Karate is designed for real combat.

Real combat is fast and furious and messy. That’s why we focus on what works, rather than flashy moves.

Learn techniques that are practical and effective. Techniques that generate maximum speed and power effortlessly.


Gojuryu Karate embraces the way of hard and soft. It embraces balance.

Balance is vital to health and longevity. With the right techniques and training, you don’t need (or want) to be built like a tank.

Learn to build a balanced body.


Gojuryu Karate focuses on training according to your abilities and physique.

We are all built differently, with different strengths and weaknesses, but we should all be able to hold our own against any opponent, even if they are bigger or stronger or faster.

We help you “even the odds” by focusing on strategy, by honing techniques suited to your strengths and by eliminating wasteful movement.

Learn to enhance your strengths and harness your weaknesses.
