What is Shureikan Karate? Shuri (Capitol city of the Ryukyu Kingdom), Kan (school) is the modern day interpretation of an ancient Martial Arts, indigenous to what we now know of as “Okinawa”. Predating Japan’s complete takeover of the Ryukyu Kingdom and renaming it Okinawa, it’s southern most prefecture, the archipelago was a thriving trade seaport living under a HONNE, (spoken truth) paying annual taxes to China, and TATAMAE (unspoken lie) Japanese occupation by Satsuma warrior class Samurai. Up until the late 1800’s, The Ryukyu Kingdom had many layers of “class of people”, as their government was a Monarchy. At the top was the Sho King, who resided in “Shuri Castle” in the capitol city of Shuri. Directly under the Sho King, was the “Royal Body Guard”. One of the most famous, whose name still resonates with-in the traditional martial arts community, was Soken Bushi Matsumura. His teaching of “Tode”, the name given to the indigenous style of hand to hand combat, was the spring board to what we now know of as “Karate”.
