Sensei Bernie Kelly, 4th Dan
Okinawan Karate is the original karate. Karate was developed for the average person to use for self defense. Shorin Ryu Karate was the gold standard for Okinawa police. There are three Main Schools of Okinawan Karate: Shorin Ryu, Gojo Ryu, and Uechi Ryu.
Karate practitioners train to be physically strong and tenaciously efficient fighters. The only real secret in karate is that, in order to achieve this, you must master yourself. Karate practitioners are a benefit to their communities, because being a good person is the most efficient and effective self-defense technique.
Okinawan karate has proven to be one of the most complete systems because it includes hand and foot striking and grappling, and is a system that can be practiced well into your advanced years. Okinawan karate is a life-long endeavor.
