This website is devoted to the art of traditional Okinawan karate-do, or more specifically the Matsubayashi-ryu style of karate-do.

In 1998 we were extremely fortunate to have been introduced to (and subsequently accepted as students of) Patrick Beaumont Kyoshi from Athlone in Ireland.  Since this time we have trained and studied with determination, representing both our teacher and the Matsubayashi-ryu style of Okinawan karate-do at our small but dedicated dojo here in England.

At present we are, as far as we know, the only dojo of this style operating in England however it is our hope that we can successfully promote our art and, in time, more people will come to be able to appreciate the true 'way' of Matsubayashi-ryu karate-do.
