Karate clubs based in Tasman, New Zealand, study the Martial Art of Shohei-Ryu, formerly known as Uechi-Ryu. Shohei-Ryu is a system of self-defence which imitates the animal movements of the Crane, Tiger and the Dragon. Originally taught in ancient China, Shohei-Ryu Karate not only provides a means of personal security but is an excellent way of keeping fit and building confidence. It can be studied by male and female, old and young.
The Okinawa Karate Association N.Z. is affiliated to the Okinawa Karate-Do Association in Okinawa, Japan. The group welcomes all, whether you are a beginner or have experience in Martial Arts.
