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 initially introduced to this little-known branch of karate and since this time we have trained and studied around the world with determination, representing Matsubayashi-ryu to the best of our abilities and passing on the art at our small but dedicated dojo here in England.

Following a visit to Okinawa in 2012, we were subsequently welcomed to join the dojo of, and become students under Toshimitsu Arakaki Hanshi (10th Dan) and are now proud members and supporters of the World Matsubayashi-ryu Karate-do Association (WMKA).

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.
