Shito-Ryu Australia Karate-Do Kai Membership Information

There are 12 countries outside Japan that have official representatives. Australia is the most recent addition after Sensei Mike Williams was appointed as the Official Representative of Shito-Ryu Australia Karate-Do Kai by Kenzo Mabuni Soke.

Shito-Ryu Karate-Do was founded by Kenwa Mabuni and is one of the four main styles of Karate in Japan. Kenwa Mabuni founded the Nippon Karate-Do Kai with the Kensyukan (honbu) dojo in Osaka, Japan. After the death of Kenwa Mabuni, the original Dojo and Nippon Karate-Do Kai was passed onto his second son, Kenzo Mabuni Soke.

Today, the original curriculum of Kenwa Mabuni is still taught which it is why it is referred to as Seito (pure or unchanged) Shito-Ryu Karate-Do.
