An exclusive five-part series discussing my experience training at Tetsuhiro Hokama Sensei’s Goju Ryu Karate dojo in Okinawa. I’m incredibly grateful for having the opportunity to participate in the Goju Ryu Karate Black-belt classes during my visit to Okinawa in February 2019. Now I want to share these experiences with you.​

Episode One
In this episode, I present an insight into what to expect if you were to travel to Okinawa and attend a Karate class, including the 1.5 hours of physical exercises you are expected to train as a “warm-up” before the class officially starts, and the real teaching begins.​

Episode Two
In this episode, I present a sequence of applications that form the building blocks to enable the Karate practitioner to defend against wrist grabs. Utilizing angles, leverage, footwork, relaxation, how to engage the tendons, and the importance of using the breath that is developed from the practice of the San-Chien form.​

Episode Three
In this episode, I present two complex applications that clearly demonstrate the “hard/soft” principles of Goju Ryu. These methods focus on attacking the nervous system by crushing the ulnar nerve in the hand and fingers. Simultaneously, damaging the sciatic and tibial nerves in the legs and inflicting maximum damage to two pressure/acupuncture points on the top of the feet.

Episode Four
In this episode, I present a sequence of applications used to defend against wrist grabs. Utilizing angles, leverage, footwork, relaxation, striking, and the ability to flow and change depending on the opponent’s resistance.

Episode Five
The sophisticated design of the Okinawan Karate Gi contains many secrets hidden in clear sight. On the back of the Gi, a horizontal line conceals a vital point located on the midline of the back between the sixth and seventh thoracic vertebrae. If you know how and when to strike this point, you can effectively immobilize and restrain your opponent. Why are there slits on both sides of the Gi? Why do you tie a knot in your belt below the navel? All of those secrets and more are revealed in this video, the final episode in this series discussing my experience training at Tetsuhiro Hokama Sensei’s Goju Ryu Karate dojo in Okinawa.​

Excellent course with in-depth instruction

I have discovered how to relax and use the tendons after listening to your explanations in this fabulous course. I wasn’t taught even a fraction of this during my 15+ years of training Goju Ryu back in the 80s. Now, I have to practice these techniques with my students and training partners. Thank you kindly.
