Seibukan Shorin Ryu is a style of karate developed by Master Zenryo Shimabukuro, student of the great Master Chotoku Kyan. It is neither a hard or soft style and requires power and precision as well as speed and agility. Repetition of basics and kata are the foundation of training in Seibukan Shorin Ryu. Dedicated practice of Seibukan Karate-Do is a path of self-discovery and self-improvement. Under the guidance of Sensei Zenpo Shimabukuro, Seibukan Shorin Ryu continues the legacy of its founder Master Zenryo Shimabukuro.
