Goju Ryu

Kanryo Higaonna, 1853-1916, founder of Naha-te

Note that, due to the different forms of Japanese can be translated into English that you can see often known as Higaonna Kanryo Kanryo Hiagaonna.

Kanryo Higaonna nació en Naha, Okinawa en 1853, was one of eight children. His father had traded between islands firewood local to the area. Kanryo Sensei helped his father from the age of ten, and hard work made him very strong. Kanryo From childhood he showed great interest in the arts of combat and was eager to learn as much as possible. He was well known for being very flexible and quick on his feet, despite its small size.

At fourteen he began learning Kanryo Chinese Kenpo. Its well-developed and strong body allowed an early mastery of Chinese Kempo and quickly gained a reputation as a martial arts master in Naha. Dissatisfied with your skill level, Kanryo wanted to go to China to study Chinese martial arts and culture. Unfortunately, the financial circumstances of his family could not offer the freedom to travel.

By chance Higaonna Sensei's teacher introduced him to Udon Yoshimura, a point guard in the port of Naha. Udon Yoshimura who finally was sponsored trip to China to Sensei Higaonna. At the age of sixteen, Naha left toward the Chinese port of Fuzhou, where he remained in the settlement of Okinawa called Ryu Kyu-kan. It took almost a year to be presented to Sensei Higaonna local teacher in Foochow Chinese Kempo, Yuko el Maestro Ryu.

Even after seeing the Sensei Higaonna been submitted, was not immediately accepted as a disciple. Chinese teachers take the time to study the personality and character of candidates before accepting disciples.. Thereby, Higaonna Sensei was given the task of tending the garden and cleaning the teacher's room and made these tasks diligently and with enthusiasm over a long period of time. Impressed by his attitude, Master Ryu Ryuko Sensei Higaonna finally accepted as his personal disciple.

As a disciple, Higaonna Sensei assist his master in his trade as a bamboo craftsman by day and then by night train. Training began with the practice of Sanchin, and lifting heavy ceramic pots (nigiri-game) by its edges to strengthen the grips of the student during practice Unsoku-ho (step movement) to develop a firm foundation. He continued doing exercises using the Muchi-ishi (piedra natural) and makiwara (pole hit), and a Uki (bamboo basket), where two people practicing grappling and choking techniques. These new tools and training techniques to Sensei Higaonna fascinated increasing interest in karate further. The hard training took its toll, however, and legs, swollen hands and shoulders were always more effort. However, was this hard training which allowed him to develop muscles like steel forged. After several years of hard training, became skilful disciple of his teacher.

Throughout the city of Fuzhou, the fame of Higaonna Sensei in extended gradually as a great martial artist. An episode involving a discussion between two dojos students (a training) led to competition in order to show who was superior. In order to choose a superior martial artist and no one gets hurt, Each teacher chose his best student to perform the kata instead of fighting to freestyle. Higaonna Sensei was elected to represent his dojo. The students of the dojo were filled with wonder at Higaonna Sensei performing kata Sanchin. After, of another dojo master admitted that master the art of Ryu Ryuko was over and spread his fame further Sensei Higaonna. Many martial artists tried to engage in battle with him to prove his bravery, but Higaonna Sensei kept his promise to his teacher not to fight to prove their ability to refuse to these challenges.

Higaonna Sensei Foochow remained close disciple of thirteen, after which he returned to Okinawa. Higaonna Sensei visits the owner of the vessel, Udon Yoshimura, that had made the trip to China possible. Udon Yoshimura Higaonna Sensei asked to teach their children some of the skills he had learned in China.
Higaonna Sensei's fame spread rapidly throughout Naha, attracting the attention of the king of the Ryukyu Dynasty. So, for many years, taught martial arts to members of the royal family also. However, many people of the city came to Higaonna Sensei and asked to be admitted as a personal disciple. However, due to the hardness of the formation, only a few stayed with him for a long time. Among his disciples, a young man called Chojun Miyagi was one of the few left. Higaonna Sensei had opened his home in Nishimachi as a dojo and taught his art to his disciples without charging any fee. In addition to private instruction, Higaonna Sensei began to teach in a public high school in Naha, at the request of director 1905. He instilled in students both the physical and spiritual value of his martial art.

During his thirteen years in China, Sensei Higoanna dominated many traditional martial arts, eg, the art of straight sword. His technique in these different martial arts was truly art in motion. His hands and legs had extraordinary lightness to make your moves fast as lightning. The people were surprised to see someone so small, five feet and one inch, had so much power and strength, and referred to him as Kensei, namely, “sacred fists”. Little by little, Higaonna Sensei's art became known as Naha-te, “Naha”, in reference to the region of Naha in Okinawa and “to” hand technique. He dedicated his life, along with his disciple of Chojun Miyagi Sensei, to the improvement and promotion of the art of Naha-te. In early 1916, Higaonna Sensei fell ill and died in October 1916. Thereby, the art of Naha-te was delivered Kanryu Higaonna Sensei Chojun Miyagi Sensei his disciple
Kanryo Higaonna Sensei is honored today as the founder of Naha-te karate.

Masanobu Shinjo

On de Okinawa, a master of Goju-Ryu called Masanobu Shinjo emerged and, Miyagi and before he, became known for his gentle nature and extraordinary strength. Shinjo formally began his karate studies in 1953 and 1963 opened his own dojo, the Shobukan. For the next several decades Shinjo held annual demonstrations as he watched his organization grow and tried to introduce his school not only to mainland Japan., but also in North and South, Africa, Europe and India. In 1982, Masanobu Shinjo was awarded ninth dan and the title of “Hanshi” por la Okinawa Goju-Ryu Goju-Kai, making it one of the highest-ranked karate masters in Okinawa Goju-Ryu.

Maestro Yagi, it was a 10 º Then the Goju-Ryu, described as the nearest teacher Master Miyagi, in the way it performs kata and techniques. More than any other Goju-Ryu practitioner. This similarity may be the result of Shinjo's search more than anyone else in Okinawa, I had trained with Miyagi in order to study their individual kata, because usually Miyagi Asked to their students to specialize in one kata, together with Sanchin. In this way, Shinjo was able to learn all aspects of Goju-Ryu Miyagi, as he had done previously in relation to the study of Naha-Te with Higaonna.

One of the main mentors was Meitoku Yagi Shinjo, it was the best student of Miyagi Sensei. Through this direct lineage, the teachings and integrity of Miyagi's art remained intact. In 1990, Yagi Shinjo sensei was appointed as Chairman of the Okinawa Goju-Ryu Goju-Kai, while an instructor head of the organization that he founded, la Okinawa Goju-Ryu Shobukan Asociación. Shinjo also became the President of the All Okinawa Karate-Do Association, the prestigious organization that encompasses all traditional styles of Okinawan Karate-Do.

The world of karate suffered a serious setback in October 1993 with the untimely passing of Master Shinjo after a year-long illness. Like Master Miyagui, Shinjo had dedicated his life promoting Goju – Ryu, so we made trips to China, to Temple of Shaolin, Taiwan, and his numerous Shobukan headquarters in the United States and other schools in the country.

From 1993 to 1998 It was a period of restructuring of the Shobukan So Honbu organization. Seiki Takushi fue nombrado SoHonbu Kancho y Juan Gate, the United States representative Shobukan was appointed to the position of International Representative. With the supervision of the Shobukan by Takushi and Porta Kanchos firmly adheres and Shobukan strictly adheres to the most demanding requirements of technique and conduct to what was established and matured under the direction of Shinjo Sensei..

Shobukan organization remains steadfast in its commitment to outreach and internationalization of traditional Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate-Do. Any questions concerning the Organization Shobukan should be directed to the International Shobukan, Okinawa Sede, Japan and Sensei John Porta (see photo of John Porta and Masanobu Shinjo).
