From his website

Our style of Karate the Shorin-Ryu Shorinkan is one of the oldest most prestigious styles of martial arts in the world. It is important to realize that there are currently four major branches of Shorinryu Karate practiced in the world today, Kobyashi-Ryu, Shobyashi-Ryu, Matsubyashi Ryu and Matsumura Saito. In the Shorinkan we practice Kobyashi Shorin-Ryu. The Shorinkan is headed by Hanshi Shugoro Nakazato Sensei, a man who is literally considered an intangible cultural asset of Karate by the Japanese government. Our Karate rank comes directly from Okinawa Japan and is internationally recognized by Karate practitioners. In 2012 Nakazato Hanshi appointed his son, Minoru Nakazato Hanshi, as his personal successor to the ShorinKan system. Minoru Hanshi has been actively growing the system worldwide.
