At the Rockland Matsubayashi-Ryu Dojo

we practice traditional Okinawan Karate-Do, Matsubayashi Shorin-Ryu, under the direction of Yoshitaka Taira, Hanshi, 10th Dan, as it developed around Tomari Village, was passed down from the early Masters and was shaped into a specific style founded by Grandmaster Shoshin Nagamine in 1947.

As a dojo associated with the World Matsubayashi-Ryu Karate-Do Association, we focus on practicing the 18 traditional Kata, fighting techniques through Yakosoku Kumite (choreographed fighting) and Kumite (sparring).
