By the way,now the fight with the covid-19 takes precedence over everything.Even in Japan, general sports activities have been repressed significantly.In my Yuzenkai dojo,all training that requires contact with the opponent has stopped.

|17/11/2019Members Only About the correct usage of Sai
.... I don't think there is any weapon as misunderstood as Sai.I guess ,because its shape is similar to a dagger,Sai sometimes used like a dagger. As a result, much people must be feel Sai is difficult weapon to use.That is the complete misunderstanding. Sai originally was Okinawan police's weapon for suppress the thug with.Bo . The mission is not to kill the thug, but to capture his Bou and arrest him. I uploaded some exersise of Sai for the Yuzenkai members only site.

Reinstatement of Makiwara 巻き藁の復権
Makiwara is the representative and most traditional training tool of karate with the history of hundreds of years. But today ,we lost the sight of Makiwara training at not a few dojo. Was it replaced by modern training equipment? The answer is “No”.Because it is irrelevant to the competition,the modern competition sport Karate has eliminated Makiwara from dojo .
This is equivalent to excluding the essence of karate. equivalent to excluding the essence of karate.

Needless to say, Gojuryu is a philosophical name. It means "style of Go and Ju".This name come from the proverb "Truth has both Go and Ju" in the "Bubishi"."Go" means blows such as hardness, linear movement, tuki or keri."Ju" means the softness, circular movement, joint lock and throw.In brief, the style called Gojuryu is like as the mix martial arts from the first.So kata of Gojuryu has very many joint locks and throws as for it.It may be said that the word "Gojuryu" sublimated to the concept of the martial arts philosophy from the word indicating one sect of Karate .Is the concept called "Gojuryu" not our way of life itself?I think that it is the arrival of the wave of the new times that the Chinese martial artist of various styles joined this time.

Most of throw and joint locks of Gojuryu are carried out by the principle of "Sashi-te"(Stabbing hand)Karate needs the momentary offense and defense.Hence the "grasps" and the "catching are verbose.Therefore Gojuryu-fighter does the joint lock by the principle of "Sashi-te".

|Yuzenkai is a Karate Research Dojo that aims to bring together the thought,
the theory and the techniques of traditional Goju-Ryu Karate. We train
as usual with the WKF Method and the Kyokushin method, though they are
means to create the Yuzenkai Goju-Ryu .
Yuzenkai's kumite has knockdown blows( tsuki, keri), joint locks(kansetsu-waza), chokeholds( shime-waza), grappling techniques( Katame-waza and throwing techniques(Nage waza). Gojuryu has much traditional techniques. But the techniques had been not systematically arranged from easy techniques to advanced techniques. My aim is to make much techniques into the curriculum systematically, and to establish the system of Gojuryu. Also YUZENKAI values "Kobudo", which are the traditional weapons of the Karate. We use, and succeed through the use of those weapons from the theory of Gojuryu. I beleave the communication with YUZENKAI will contribute to your Karate.
Kancho Omoto(OMOTO Kazunori 尾本一則1958～ ) has studied ancient type Gojuryu Karate from Shihan Yoshiaki Naganuma(1944～) ,the former kancho of Yuzenkai, since 1973. Kancho Omoto earned the Master of Arts degree from Waseda University (Tokyo, Japan) in 1982. He also learned Syotokan Karate at that university time. When he acquired the Black Belt, Karate of Japan was facing a crucial turning point.
Especially,the integration of Kata, and the kumite rule (that is disadvantageous for Gojuryu) constructed by sports karate of JKF.
Kancho Omoto became a high school teacher in 1982.And he began to coach school Karate clubs(JKF type sports Karate ).Under his leadership, the students have achieved many competitions prizes of all-Japan, metropolitan, and pacific ocean districts.Nowaday some students become excellent Karate instructors of Yuzenkai.At the same time, he started to coach the Nahate Gojuryu Karate (Ancient Gojuryu martial arts)in his private dojo.
From 2006 to 2007, kancho Omoto served to develop a large-scale E-learning system for high schools in Japan.And he helped produce educational TV of NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) as the chairman of the committee concerning high school correspondence courses. That experience significantly influenced his Yuzenkai method.As requests from oversea for direct tie-ins with Yuzenkai increasingly , kancho Omoto recognized the urgent needs to expand Yuzenkai's activity from domestic to world by internet. In 2013, he inherited the post of kancho of Yuzenkai,and established GIKKU-Gojuryu International Karatedo Kobudo Union,and started to share the fruits of his 40-year journey of study in Karatedo and Kobudo with all Karate-ka in the world. After the retirement age he is playing three role— as the guest lecturer of high school ,as the Kancho of Yuzenkai Japan and as the grand master of Gojuryu International Karatedo Kobudu Unoin. His motivation lies first and foremost in the preservation, promulgation and furtherance of the ancient type Goju-Ryu; he believes passionately in the need for accurate, philosophical and spiritual exploration of and research on Karatedo, and he teaches a special course in Goju-Ryu and Kobudo at his Yuzenkai dojo.Kancho Omoto believes that the state of contemporary Japanese Karate lacks the proper philosophical and ethical elements, as well as true persepctive.
