In addition, this site is dedicated to all the practitioners of Shorin-ryu past and present,particularly those that greatly enfluenced our art and laid the foundation for what it is today such as Sensei Chibana and Sakugawa "Tode".  Without these men Sensei Shugoro Nakazato wouldn't have been able to create the Shorin-ryu Shorinkan assocation.
