Shukokai Karate Builds Self-Confidence and is a Way for All:

Shukokai is is based on Tani-ha Shito-ryu, a branch of Shito-ryu karate developed by Chojiro Tani in the late 1940′s. Shito-ryu is one of the four styles of traditional, Japanese karate. The first dojo (training facility) where Tani taught his style was opened in Kobe, Japan in 1946 and named ShukoKai, meaning the “Way for All”.

Shukokai was designed around the study of body mechanics, and is famed for maximizing the force of its strikes. Due to this, Shukokai is known as one of the hardest-hitting Karate styles. Westshore Kimura Shukokai Karate is a member of Kimura Shukokai International, with affiliated dojos in over 20 countries in Europe, North America, Africa and Australia.
