Welcome to Goju.co.za!
Our objectives and activities focus on the preservation and practice of Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate according to the teachings of the founder, Master Chojun Miyagi.
We encourage the development of friendships and mutual respect through interaction via tournaments, seminars and global communication with those who share our interests.
Karate-Do is a great cultural legacy which has been handed down to us through the ages. Today it can be seen as a truly international martial art which is practiced throughout the nations of the world.
Grand Master Chojun Miyagi, the founder of Goju-Ryu Karate, described karate as "a martial art which is dependent solely on the human body - weapons are not used at all."
In our everyday training the karate practitioner strives to improve both mind and body. Our intention is to develop a sound and healthy body where, in the event that we are attacked unexpectedly, we are able to defend ourselves effectively.
That is to say, the initial goal of karate is to be able to defeat an assailant using solely our natural weapons - our body.
