Every year the Gold Coast branch of the Okinawa Goju Ryu kenkyukai goes to Okinawa to train with Taira Sensei and in Kobudo with the Kinjo family.
These trips are all about the training an about learning about the Okinawan people, language and culture. Things that are all too difficult to do justice with books or videos; it's 'boots on the ground' stuff.
We train, we see the sights, we eat, drink and be merry whilst further developing our martial arts, language and research skills.
We usually only go for a week at a time so its action packed in terms of time and schedule. The next trip is January 2018 so if you are intereted please send us your details via the contacts link above. Goju Ryu stuylists preferred as that's what we are training in after all……….
