Shorin Ryu Karate 


Karate, as we know it today, originated on the Ryukyu Archipelago, more commonly known as the island of Okinawa, Japan. The major sites were the villages of Naha, Shuri, and Tomari. Shobayashi Shorin-Ryu originated in Shuri, Okinawa as Shuri-Te and is one of the major branches of modern Shorin-Ryu.
