We are delighted to announce, as of September 30th 2023, our affiliation with the esteemed Katsumi Tamaki 10th dan Hanshi and his family art of Shinjin-Ryu Okinawa-Te.
Katsumi Tamaki, born in Urasoe, Okinawa, who moved to the UK in 1981 from mainland Japan, is a renowned martial artist with a wealth of experience in the Okinawan martial arts. A traditional Okinawan deeply rooted in history and culture. Hanshi Tamaki's dedication and expertise in this discipline have made him a respected figure in the martial arts community, and we are honored to be associated with him.
Shinjin-Ryu Okinawa-Te is a martial art that embodies the rich heritage and values of Okinawan culture. It emphasizes self-discipline, physical conditioning, and the development of both mental and physical strength. This art has had a profound impact on the lives of those who practice it, promoting personal growth, resilience, and a deep connection to Okinawan traditions.
Our association with Katsumi Tamaki originally began decades ago in 1981, when our journey into the world of Shinjin-Ryu Okinawa-Te first took root. However, the sands of time led us on divergent paths, and it's only recently that we've had the privilege of rekindling this profound connection.
This reunion has reinvigorated our commitment to preserving and promoting the Okinawan art's that have long been a part of our collective heritage.
With renewed enthusiasm, we eagerly anticipate the opportunity to embark on this collaborative endeavor once more, forging ahead with a shared dedication to the timeless wisdom and traditions of Shinjin-Ryu Okinawa-Te.
Aligning with Katsumi Tamaki and the Shinjin-Ryu Okinawa-Te Kyokai reflects our commitment to promoting the Okinawan martial arts and preserving its authenticity. We look forward to sharing the wisdom and beauty of Shinjin-Ryu Okinawa-Te with you.
