Jundokan International of Lakeshore ON Canada.
We are an official Jundokan International dojo. We are a Goju Ryu karate dojo that places a strong emphasis on traditional techniques, respect, integrity and discipline. Our objectives focus on the preservation and practice of Okinawan Goju Ryu Karate-do according to the teachings of the founder, Sensei Chojun Miyagi as passed down by our teacher Sensei Teruo Chinen.
The naming of our karate style "Goju Ryu" was by Sensei Chojun Miyagi.
"Go" (internally, strong/steadfast) and "Ju" (externally, gentle)
Our style was developed in Okinawa with its roots from China, it reflects a blend of techniques ranging from powerful and explosive punches and kicks, to more subtle and gentle blocking and evading techniques.
Our teacher and founder of Jundokan International, Sensei Teruo Chinen (1941-2015) exemplified the meaning of Goju Ryu throughout his life. United by our training under Sensei Chinen, we maintain his dedication to Goju Ryu.
