WORLD SANSEI

Goju-Ryu translates as hard and soft, strong and gentle, or block soft and hit hard system.  The translations can prove difficult to put into practice.  Since language is a major factor to shape thinking and therefore movement, the words “hard and soft” can lead to confusion.  Goju-Ryu may be viewed as being both strong and gentle as seen in the jungle cats, which move gently, but with strong force simultaneously.  One ultimate goal of Goju-Ryu training is to achieve a balance of strength and gentleness, thus creating a harmony within the practitioner in all aspects of life.  This is the “way” of Goju-Ryu Karate.
