Dan grading

Congratulations to everyone that took part in the grading on Sunday. Hard work but it was pleasing to see everyone had put in so much to make the day such a success.

To those that passed, well done. To those who were deferred, you know what needs to be done and no doubt you will rise to the challenge.

Non Goju Ryu library added

The Library within the Club Members Only are has been enhanced to incorporate general martial arts information that is not specifically to do with Goju Ryu but you might find interesting nonetheless.

There are 114 files in the following areas:

Non Goju Ryu > Fight Quest
Non Goju Ryu > Fundamentals of Pressure Points
Non Goju Ryu > Human Weapon
Non Goju Ryu > Martial Arts – 23 Books
Non Goju Ryu > Mind, Body and Kick Ass Moves
Non Goju Ryu > Miscellaneous
Non Goju Ryu > Taiji

1994 Higaonna kata videos

24 videos showing the front and side view of all the katas are now available in the Club Members Only section.

All are from a 1994 set made by Morio Higaonna and hence are good for checking out how it’s done.

The 24 videos are:
