|24/5/201810 Branch Chiefs in Yuzenkai China
The 10 dojo operators joined Yuzenkai by Saiko-Shihan Huanghai's great job of promoting Yuzenkai in China, all over the country. By this,more than 250 students combined, and some of them teach in more than one place.
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.今やGojuryuという語はKarateの一つのセクトを示す語から、武道哲学の概念へ昇華したと言えるであろう。Gojuryuという概念は、我々の生き方そのものと言えるかもしれない。いろいろなスタイルの中国の武道家が加盟したことは新しい時代の波の到来と言える。

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".
The follow question about the movement of the 20th and the 21st of Sisouchin was sent to me from a certain member."The common application I see is when the attacker grabs both wrists you lift up both arms and strike the attacker with your elbows. Is there another explanation? "I uploaded the answer video on the members only site in order to share and perusal.

Pakistan Yuzenkai Shihan Fazal Muhammad receive the Balochistan Sports Award-2015 that is honor. This is the prize that is given to the sportsmen who have done a best work for the country in the sports fields each year by the Balochistan Junieer Sports Association.
Yuzenkai is the Karate Research Dojo that aims to bring together the thought, the theory and the techniques of the 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 Kumite.In the kumite,Yuzenkai uses knockdown blows: tsuki, keri, joint locks：Kansetsu-waza, chokeholds: Shime-waza, grappling techniques: Katame-waza and throwing techniques：Nage waza.Gojuryu has the technique of rich "JU". But the technique of "JU" had been not systematically arranged from easy techniques to advanced techniques. My plan is to make for the technique of "JU" a 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. The communication with YUZENKAI will contribute to your Karate.
........................................................................................................................ Kancho Omoto(OMOTO Kazunori 尾本一則1958～ ) has studied Gojuryu Karate of the system of Seiko Higa from Shihan Yoshiaki Naganuma ,the former kancho of Yuzenkai, since 1973. He 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.His subject is ethics, philosophy, history, economics and political science.In that time,he coached the Karate clubs(JKF style ).And under his leadership, his students have achieved mastery, victory and numerous prizes in the All-Japan, Metropolitan, and Pacific Ocean Districts.In addition, some kancho's students have since gone on to become excellent Karate instructors.At the same time, he started the coaching of Nahate Gojuryu Karate in his private dojo. With Nahate Gojury as his primary focus, aggressively explored the ancient Gojuryu techniques, which had hither to threatened to disappear from contemporary martial arts practices.
From 2006 to 2007, kancho Omoto served as super intendent in charge of developing a large-scale e-learning system for public high schools in Japan; he also helped produce educational TV for NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) as the chairman of the committee concerning high school correspondence courses via broadcast. These experiences also significantly influenced his Yuzenkai method.
From 1993 to 2013, kancho Omoto has also aided in the development of furinkazan Karatedo as Saiko-shihan (originated by Terutomo Yamazaki, the first champion of Kyokushin). As requests from oversea for direct tie-ins with Yuzenkai increasingly , Omoto Sensei recognized the urgent need to expand Yuzenkai's activity from domestic to world wide appropriate for the internet age.
In2013, he established his own federation, GIKKU-Gojuryu International Karatedo Kobudo Union and JIKKI-the Japan International Karatedo kobudo Institute, and has started to 'share the fruits' of his 40-year journey of study in Karatedo and Kobudo with people all over the world, “by his own hand. Presently, kancho Omoto plays three role— as the public high school vice-principal,as the Kancho of Yuzenkai Japan and as the grand master of Gojuryu International Karatedo Kobudu Unoin. Kancho Omoto's 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.
