Matsubayashi-ryū Karatedō Kōdōkan Shinzato Karatedō Dōjō was opened in April 2001 as the Ōzato-kita Branch of the World Matsubayashi-ryū Karatedō Federation.
We inherited the teachings of the founder of the Matsubayashi-ryū, the late Master Nagamine Shōshin, who taught his disciples with the dōjō precept, "straighten your heart first, there is no first strike in karate," and we follow the precept of "courtesy, cleanliness, and diligence" as the principle of karate practitioners. I train with my disciples with the desire to pass down my master's teachings and contribute to the healthy development of local youth through karate.
I inherited the teachings of Master Nagamine and practice zazen meditation before each session. Master Nagamine always said that the ultimate goal of karate is to cultivate a person of integrity and to contribute to the world.
