The Shuri Karate Dojo is dedicated to the promotion, preservation and education of the martial arts and its traditions. We strive to be a reputable and respected dojo, dedicated to preserving the classical family style of traditional karate from Okinawa and its cultural heritage.

The Shuri Karate Dojo is affiliated with the:-
Takahashi-ha no Ryukyu Shuri-te Karate-do Kokusai Renmei and the International Ryukyu Karate Research Society.

The "Takahashi-ha no Ryukyu Shuri-te Karate-do Kokusai Renmei" is an organization entrusted with passing on and preserving the martial art of the late Takahashi Kentsu (1900-1994). Takahashi O'Sensei was a student of the 'Tenshin Katori Shinto Ryu' in Japan, and Yabu Kentsu and Chibana Choshin of Okinawa. During 1953, Takahashi O'Sensei founded his own organization and here he began teaching to small groups of selected students, where he concentrated teaching and emphasizing the traditional ideology and the spirituality of "Koryu Bujutsu" (old style martial arts). Today, Gary O'connor, Hanshi, Judan (10th dan), is the legitimate inheritor of Takahashi-ha no Ryukyu Shuri-te Karate-do from Takahashi Kentsu.

We are the official representatives and senior instructors for the USA, under Garry O'Connor Hanshi 10th dan.

Carter-sensei is a member of the "Ryukyu Karate-Jutsu Kokusai Kenkyukai" (International Ryukyu Karate Research Society), an information based organization dedicated to studying, the origins, evolution and tactical application theories of old-school karate and kobudo.

The founder and head instructor is Patrick McCarthy, Hanshi 9th dan. Hanshi holds Yudansha (black belt) accreditation in Jujutsu, Judo, Yamaneryu Kobudo and Sugino-ha Katori Shinto Ryu (Japanese swordsmanship). Hanshi McCarthy also created "Koryu Uchinadi Kenpo Jutsu", (which translates as old stream Okinawa hands Quanfa art) meaning the old fighting arts of Chinese origin as handed down in Okinawa, which is Hanshi Patrick McCarthy's interpretation of these practices. It is a method of responding to what we refer to as "Habitual Acts of Physical Violence" utilising punches, kicks, throws, joint manipulations, strangles, pressure point strikes and ground fighting.
