Karate, literally “Empty Hand”, originated on the Ryukyu Islands (today, Okinawa) among the Pechin or scholarly class, where it was originally known as “te” or “hand“. It was influenced, over many years, by Chinese martial arts and became truly popular when it was introduced to Japan and after that, to the rest of the world.
Shotokan, after the pen-name of its founder, Gichin Funakoshi, today represents the largest style of karate in terms of number of practitioners.
At Karate Noosa – WSKF, we teach traditional Shotokan Karate-do as originally brought to Japan by Gichin Funakoshi Sensei and refined over the years by his students, who, in turn, taught those with whom Bryan Sensei trained and learnt karate-do.
