Our style of Karate is called Shotokan, originally created in Okinawa, Japan by Gichin Funakoshi. For Sensei Funakoshi, the word ‘karate’ eventually took on a deeper meaning than just martial arts training, transforming into what is has become known as karate-do, the ‘way of the empty hand.’ He was to modify the Okinawan art by taking inspiration from traditional Japanese budo (kendo, judo, etc) and integrated their philosophical aspects into his and his student’s training. This became a total discipline, which represented a synthesis of Okinawan and Japanese schools and in 1936 he established the ‘SHOTOKAN’ style of Japanese karate. Funakoshi developed principles of Shotokan, that are still adhered to by all Shotokan dojos around the world which you can review here!!
