Karate is for self-defence
The following article is a personal reflection, after training for 19 years, on karate and why I think is a real and very valid self-defence martial art.

Academy for Goju Ryu Karate Do Seiwakai - Menlo Park

AGK: The 'Academy for Gōjū Ryū Karate Dō Seiwakai - Menlo Park 剛柔流 空手道 誠和会-国際", also known as Bay Area Gojuryu Karatedo, is a training and study group or Kenkyukai [剛柔流 空手道 武術の研究会]. 

Our annexed Woodside training schedule varies depending on club participants schedule and location availability. All communications for the annexed Woodside group and private students are restricted to direct communication in writing via email only. 

The 'Academy for Gōjū Ryū Karate Dō Seiwakai - Menlo Park 剛柔流 空手道 誠和会-国際' [or AGK, aka Bay Area Gojukan - Gojuryu Karatedo] is the sole host and supporter of the All Gojuryu Network; the worlds foremost online resource regarding Gojuryu Karatedo. We are dedicated to supporting and expanding our art to the community starting right here at home in the San Francisco Bay Area and we welcome any input you may provide to help us in Karatedo and Bujutsu. If you would like to know more about our syllabus, please check the links at the bottom of this page.

 

Johnpaul Williams, Sensei organizing the Academy for Gojuryu Karatedo & Bujitsu

Club members are not required to join any of our affiliated groups or associations to train or grade within the club. The Curriculum Vitae for "Academy for Gojuryu Karatedo & Bujutsu" Instructor Johnpaul Williams can be found at http://www.gojuryu.net/jp, who's ongoing memberships, include however may not be limited to:

Invited Guest instructors [holding instructors credentials and current background checks] may visit and train with the class, providing additional insight and optional points of views. Students also enjoy the opportunity to travel for competition and training nation-wide and abroad including Japan, Brazil, Okinawa, Hawaii, NY, Australia, Spain, Singapore, Hong Kong, India and other locations with our extensive network of Sister Clubs & Dojo in cooperation with premier world organizations.

Karatedo is like having a treasure in your pocket

We are not your run of the mill, fly by night martial arts group with questionable claims or invent our own style. This is legitimate Karatedo, having a primary focus on the specific style of Gojuryu. A direct and traceable lineage, international opportunities to train in Japan or Okinawa and skills that will last you a lifetime.

We students of Goju Ryu aspire to these virtues:
Goju Ryu no watashitachi gakusei wa, korera no bitoku o netsubo shimasu:
剛柔流の私たち学生は、これらの美徳を熱望します:
1. We are proud to study the way of Goju Ryu.
Goju Ryu no michi wo manabu wo motte hokori to subeshi.
剛柔流の道を学ぶを以て誇りとすべし。
2. We are courteous in manners.
Reigi wo tadashiku subeshi.
礼儀を正しくすべし。
3. We strive to develop courage and fighting spirit.
Shichijitsugoken wo mune to subeshi.
質実剛健を旨とすべし。
4. We cultivate fellowship and understanding.
Danketsu gojo no seishin wo yashinaubeshi.
団結互助の精神を養うべし。
5. We respect the ideals of loyalty and honor, traditional from olden times in Japan.
Nippon korai no dentotaru shobu no kifuu wo soncho subeshi.
日本古来の伝統たる尚武の気風を尊重すべし。

Think you haven't heard of Gojuryu Karatedo before? Think again!

  • Gojuryu - as in Miyagi Sensei & Karate Kid.
  • The real Miyagi Sensei is the founder of Goju Ryu;
  • Gojuryu - the Martial Art which inspired the video game "Street Fighter II";
  • Gojuryu - the Martial Art that Kyokushin-kai and K1 come from;
  • Gojuryu - the Martial Art of which Dragon Ball Z is based on, think "Kameyamehaaa!";
  • Gojuryu - the Martial Art of "Blackcat", "Rattan", "Captain America" "Spider-Man",
  • Gojuryu - the Martial Art performed the Movie "Miami Vice";
  • Gojuryu the style of Shinichi "Sonny" Chiba [Japan movie star as Takuma (Terry) Tsurugi.
  • Costar of the cult classic movie "Kill Bill Volume 1 & 2;
  • Star of the phenomenally popular movies "Street Fighter" & "Return of Street Fighter".
  • Gojuryu - the Martial Art featured in "Bosozoku Fighters" [Japan Anime];
  • Gojuryu - the Martial Art featured in The Gold and the Glory.
  • Titled "The Coolangatta Gold" in Australia] 
  • Featuring Paul Starling of Goshi Yamaguchi's IKGA Goju Kai.
  • Ever hear of Emma Bunton [Baby Spice] of the Spice Girls? Yup she studied Goju Ryu and has even taught skills to her band members for several music video.
  • Gojuryu - the style practiced by Michael Jai White.
  • Star of "Tyson", "Universal Soldier", "Black Dynamite" and more.
  • Gojuryu - the style practiced by Taimak, star of the movie "Last Dragon".
  • Gojuryu - the style featured in the award winning movie "Black Belt - Kuro Obi". 
  • Starring Akihito Yagi and Tatsuya Naka.
  • The great news is it's not threatening or scary. if you're in the San Francisco Bay area and looking to expand your workouts and training, searching for the kind of workout you can feel the next day and need the real thing in your kickboxing and cross training, then this is for you. A modern Martial Art taught scientifically mixed with the traditional ways that you can learn, apply and make use of.

    Have you always imagined yourself taking Karate lessons? Are you looking for better coordination? Do you look at the ground when walking past strangers? Lack the self confidence that only Karatedo training can give you? Nervous about walking down the street on the way home? Just need an activity to perk up your life and get you off the sofa? An activity to help keep you or someone you know focused or occupied? Have you ever wanted to learn a Martial Art, a Classical Martial Art from accredited instructors with credentials, reference letters, background and track records? Our program delivers!

    Gojuryu is one of the major styles of Karatedo in Japan. Of the major styles, Gojuryu Karatedo, along with Shorin Ryu, Ueichi Ryu and Ryuei Ryu have the strongest ties to Okinawa, where all of today's modern systems of Karatedo and kobudo [weapons based martial arts] find their roots.

    What to expect? What's it all for.
    The thousand plus hours in training.
    The sweat, tears and accidental spilled blood.
    Hundreds of classes and special training seminars.
    An unknown number of injuries, swelling and bruises.
    Uncountable number of ceremonies, awards and trophies.
    Exhaustible sacrifices, conflicting schedules and reorganized priorities.
    All for One Black Belt
