Why isnít there more local dojo information like other sites?
We look to promote Shorin-Ryu * ShorinKan (Kobayashi-Ryu) nationally and internationally
rather than locally. Hanshi JuDan Nakazato Shugoro, Naha City, Okinawa, Japan administers
Who is this Nakazato Shugoro?
He is a 10th Degree (Hanshi JuDan) Black Belt in the Shorin-Ryu * ShorinKan (Kobayashi-Ryu)
style and is one of the most influential Okinawan living martial arts Grand Masters. For more
information see History.
Whatís the deal, there are websites where the instructor states that he has studied
under and been awarded ranking by Nakazato Shugoro?
Good question, the dojos and instructors, to our knowledge, listed on this website with their
dojo shown on the map are in "good standing" with Hanshi JuDan Nakazato. We would look to add
other sites and instructors.
Who has contact with Hanshi JuDan Nakazato?
Kyoshi Nabil Noujaim 8th Dan travels to Okinawa a couple times a year for training and other
events centered around Hanshi JuDan.
How do I get my dojo listed on the national (USA) and world map?
Contact Kyoshi Noujaim 8th Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If I were to attend an approved listed dojo, would the instructor know
about this website?
Yes. The dojo head instructor is in "good standing" and has been approved by Hanshi JuDan
Nakazato through one of the senior recognized student in the United States, Kyoshi Nabil
Noujaim 8th Dan.
