A Place to Develop Good Heart, Good Family, and Good Karate

Maine Traditional Karate offers youth and adult classes in Shorin Ryu Matsumura Seito karate-do. Shorin-Ryu is a 300-year old Okinawan system of self-defense that involves punching, kicking, grappling, and throwing. This, combined with applying pressure points and joint manipulation creates a very effective method of defending against single or multiple attackers. Beginning with blue belt, both youth and adult students expand their training to include kobudo (weaponry) including the bo, sai, kama, tonfa, nitan bo, nunchaku, nunti bo, eku, and teko. Lessons involving Okinawan culture, customs, and language round out instruction by providing a larger framework within which to understand, interpret, and apply the material being taught.


Our dojo enjoys a direct link to its Okinawan lineage through membership in the Okinawa Shorin Ryu Matsumura Seito Karate snd Kobudo Federation (OSMKKF). The OSMKKF, led by Okinawan Grandmaster Fusei Kise (pictured here) and his son and federation president, Kaicho Isao Kise, unites students from around the world in the common pursuit of good heart, good family, and good karate.
