Lessons with Us

The Official method of the World Matsubayashi-Ryu Karate-Do Association.

Our Teaching Method

Karate practice is both physical and mental. Every 2-hour lesson begins with meditation.

We also place heavy emphasis on lots of practice of Forms, both as a whole and divided into basic parts, like stances, movements, and individual strikes and blocks. We practice these both individually and within pre-arranged sparring.

We unfortunately only offer instruction in Japanese.

What We Teach

In a typical lesson, we practice the basics: punches, kicks, blocks both stationary and while moving, in order to get in practice of stances and movements. Again, we emphasize Forms (called Kata), Bunkai (application of forms), Yakusoku-kumite (pre-arranged sparring) and Kobudo (Okinawan traditional arms) using the same methods utilized by our Okinawa Headquarters.
