Wayne having received direction instruction and guidance throughout his years of training and now being accepted as a student of Teruo Chinen Sensei has created a link to the Goju Ryu Karate-do past. Our dojo has a lineage from Higaonna Sensei (founder of Naha-Te), to his successor Miyagi Sensei (founder of Goju Ryu Karate), to his successor, Miyazato Sensei (founder of Jundokan) to a direct student, Teruo Chinen Sensei (founder of Jundokan International).
