We practice traditional Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate. The Goju-Ryu ( the hard-soft style ) was created from life-long work of two great Okinawan Karate teachers,  Kanryo Higaonna (1853-1917) and his student Chojun Miyagi (1888-1953). Master Miyagi choosed the name Goju Ryu, inspired by the "Eight precepts" of Kempo, written in Bubishi.

 

Eight poems :

The human mind is one with heaven and earth.
Our blood circulation parallels the solar and lunar cycles of each day.
Inhaling represents softness while exhaling characterizes hardness.
Adapt to changing conditions.
Response must result without conscious thought.
Distancing and posture dictates the outcome of the meeting.
See what is unseeable.
Expect what is unexpected.

 

 

  The precepts  of Okinawan Goju-Ryu by Master Chojun Miyagi 

It should be known that secret principals of Goju Ryu exist in the kata.

Goju Ryu Karate-do is a manifestation within one's own self of the harmonious accord of the universe. 

The way of Goju Ryu Karate-do is to seek the way of virtue.

Our Portuguese Chief Instructor is Sensei José Campos 6th Dan ( Rokudan ), who has been practicing and teaching Karate for more than 30 years. His Teacher is Shihan Teruo Chinen, the Chief Instructor and Chairman of Jundokan International.

Born in 1941, Master Chinen is based in Spokane, Washington, U.S.A, since 1969. He was a direct student of Master Chojun Miyagi, the founder of Goju-Ryu, for a brief time before Master Miyagi's death, and then a student for many years, of Sensei Ei'ichi Miyazato, Master Miyagi's senior student.

Sensei Miyazato Dojo in Okinawa is called JUNDOKAN ( meaning "place for following in the master's foorsteps" ) as a mark of respect to Master Miyagi.

Similarly JUNDOKAN INTERNATIONAL is named to shown Sensei Chinen's respect for Master Miyagi and Sensei Miyazato.

Portuguese Jundokan Association ( J.I.P.) created in 1993,  is a member of Jundokan International, our mission is to pass on the Goju-Ryu karate of Chojun Miyagi without allowing it to be altered or changed to fit the precept of modern sport. The goal of Miyagi's style of Goju-Ryu is not only teach efective self-defense, but also improve the character of the practitioner through development of personal disciplne, strong work habits, and sense of community.

Our instructores are sanctioned and ranked, qualified to bring you the best in martial arts instruction.
