Our belief is that Okinawa Goju-Ryu Karate-do training benefits all practitioners
regardless of their nationality, race, age or gender. Training at their own pace, each
IOGKF member will improve their mind, body and spirit. Our goal is to improve the
quality of life for all our members and to make a positive impact on the world. The
IOGKF welcomes all potential new members to join our international karate family!
We belong to the International Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate-do Federation (IOGKF). This
organization is under the leadership of our master, Sensei Morio Higaonna, 10th dan.
The IOGKF is committed to preserving the intangible cultural treasure of Okinawan
Goju-Ryu Karate-do, which has been passed down to us in its original form from one
generation to the next. This lineage can be traced back to Bushi Chojun Miyagi, the
founder of Okinawa Goju-Ryu Karate-do. The IOGKF was established in 1979 and now
has members in over 50 affiliated countries worldwide and is the largest Okinawan
karate organization in the world.
