Welcome to the Okinawan Goju Ryu Kenkyu Kai Webpage! The OGRKK was officially formed in June of 1999, by John S. O'Hara, 9th Dan, Hanshi (please see Tab that says Founder) and Steve Wilson, 7th Dan, Shihan. The purpose of our organization is to practice, teach, and perpetuate the historical, technical, philosophical, and social implications of Okinawan Goju Ryu Karate Do.
We currently have Shibu (member) dojo in California, Colorado, Washington, and Illinois. We are accepting applications for new members in others states and would like to hear from you if you are interested in becoming a member or member dojo. If you enjoy traditional training in a professional, positive, and personal environment; absent of politics, egos, and high cost, you should contact us.
To learn more about the organization and how to join, please look around our webpage. We are an organization that is family oriented. We offer traditional training and certification in Okinawan Goju Ryu Karate and Kobudo. Our membership fees, training fees, and grading fees are all very reasonable. Practitioners of good character are welcome to apply for membership for karate and or kobudo; we would like to hear from you. Thank you for visiting.
