Goju-Ryu Karate History

A great deal of pride is taken in being able to trace the lineage of instructorship and mastery of a particular martial art back to the individual grandmaster credited with founding that particular style.

The current Supreme Master is Morio Higaonna Shihan who suceeded An´ichi Miyagi Shihan in April 2009.

By clicking on each of the masters´ names below, you will gleam a small part of the history and succession of our martial art from its Okinawan and Chinese roots at the turn of 19th Century to the present day.
