Famous Okinawan Karate Masters
There are many, many books written about many, many different types and styles of martial arts. However, in these few paragraphs my hope is to challenge and encourage you to learn more about karate. In general, you should study and learn as much as you can about the history and development of karate. I hope it is obvious that you should begin this journey by researching and studying the style of karate that you are currently practicing. If you are one of my students visiting this website, then your research and studies should focus on Kobayashi Shorin-ryu karate. By doing so, you will enrich your experience and develop a greater respect and better understanding of our style of karate. As a sensei, I will share certain historical and important information with my students. What good does it do a person to study over a lifetime, if one never shares what he/she has learned?
