Satori Ryu Kokusai Goju Kai is a branch of Goju-Ryu Karate. Goju-Ryu was founded in Okinawa by Miyagi Chojun. Literally translated as the "hard and soft style," Goju-Ryu features a wide array of strikes, joint locks and throws. This is taught through solo kata and bunkai oyo (analysis and application of kata). Satori Ryu Kokusai Goju Kai is descended from both Okinawan Goju-Ryu and Japanese Goju Kai founded by Yamaguchi Gogen. Students of San Budo Sogo Bugei will learn Goju-Ryu as part of our main program, however for those wanting to study Goju-Ryu specifically and separate ranking, private instruction is available.
Kojido Jitsu and Koji Jiu Jitsu both have their roots in Kodokan Judo. Kojido Jitsu was founded in 1960 by Jack Stern as an adaptation of traditional Judo, teaching both throwing and grappling (ground fighting) techniques. Koji Jiu Jitsu is a branch of Kojido that focuses solely on the grappling aspect of the art. The focus of both Kojido and Koji Jiu Jitsu is on self defense rather than competition training, so while Judo is an Olympic sport, our expression of it is geared for use in survival situations rather than tournaments. That being said, competition training is available by request.
Kempo is a striking art that emphasizes speed and fluidity. It was made popular in Hawaii, where numerous branches of the art sprang up and still flourish today. Our branch is called Kempo Jutsu and was founded by Kimo Ferreira, based upon his experience in Kajukenbo, Hawaiian Lua and Filipino stick fighting. Kajukenbo earned a reputation as being a hardcore, street fighting art that teaches rapid striking blended with joint manipulation and throws of Japanese Jujutsu. Kempo Jutsu carries on the legacy of being geared for the street, emphasizing simplicity of motion rather than complex and extensive combination striking. Elements of Kempo Jutsu are taught in our main program, however it can be studied separately in its entirety through private instruction.
