About Goju-Ryu karate

Goju-Ryu (hard-soft style) karate was developed in Okinawa, Japan, by
Sensei Chojun Miyagi in the mid-20th Century, based on the training he
received from his teacher Kanryo Higaonna combined with his own extensive
research and training. It combines hard (go) and soft (ju) techniques to produce
extraordinary power and superiority in combat.


Developing correct punching technique with the makiwara

Goju-Ryu karate is an effective martial art for physical training and self defence,
incorporating skills and techniques, kata (forms), applications, fitness
and conditioning, historical knowledge, mental preparation and self discipline.

Key elements of the training include warm up (junbi undo), supplementary exercises
(hojo undo) - including use of traditional equipment such as chi-ishi and tetsu geta,
basic techniques (kihon), moving basics (kihon ido), forms (kata), applications
(bunkai) and various types of partner work and sparring (kumite).

The importance of junbi undo and kihon is sometimes overlooked but these basics
are essential to developing correct and effective kata, which form the 'DNA' of
karate, and based on the kata, practical bunkai and kumite.
