Okinawan Seito Matsumura Shorin-ryu is an old village style of karate taught as a highly aesthetic art form steeped in cultural tradition and extremely effective for personal protection.
Shuri-ryu is a stylized sport form of karate that is very athletic and competition oriented. This dual approach to presenting karate results in a well rounded program which offers the best in fitness, self-defense, sport, authentic tradition, and fun.
Karate, the Japanese word applied in the early twentieth century to the Okinawan art of self-protection, has developed along three separate lines in accordance with the wants and needs of its practitioners. Those three branches of development are classical art, combat sport, and civil self-protection.
Frank and Patricia Fink have collectively dedicated over sixty years to the study of this fascinating art. Their personal journeys have taken them through many phases, affording them the opportunity to thoroughly investigate the aesthetic, combative, competitive, and self-development aspects of karate.
Together, they have developed a diverse and flexible curriculum that offers adult and youth students the ability to tailor their karate experience based on their individual goals. What exactly does that mean for you? It means that you or your child now has a bona fide pathway to competing on the world stage which now includes the Olympic Games.
This unhealthy rivalry led to disagreement about what rules to use and what karate should look like at the world level.
Eventually, the WKF, World Karate Federation, became the governing body and did a fine job of uniting traditional karate organizations around the world.
Nearly two decades and three attempts later, traditional karate has finally gotten approval, on a trial basis, from the IOC. Many speculate that becoming an Olympic sport will have a detrimental effect on the sport much in the same way it did for judo and taekwondo which were once very robust martial arts.
This resulted in very minimalized sports which specialize in throwing and kicking respectively. The non-practitioner has a difficult time appreciating the technical nuances on display.
Karate, on the other hand, has had decades to mature into a diverse and exciting spectator sport that hopefully will grow in its appeal after Tokyo As you might imagine, it is an arduous undertaking and requires tremendous dedication.
It begins in the dojo. Attend classes regularly and give one-hundred percent every time. You must become obsessed! Train every day, attend seminars and training camps, and compete every chance you get.
Technical training is the foundation, but it is only half the equation. The other half is conditioning. You must work hard to get into the best shape possible and maintain it. If this seems self-evident to you, then keep on reading.
The road to making the Olympic team has three phases. There are two national championship tournaments that qualify athletes to represent the USA in international competition. There are only two spots on the team for each of the four male and female weight classes and for male and female kata - twenty spots in all.
To qualify to compete as an elite athlete in these events, you must compete in a minimum of two national qualifier tournaments that year. So, the whole journey consists of: That gets you to the Olympics, but then you have to compete against scores of other world class athletes from around the globe in order to win a medal.
As you can see, being one of the best of the best requires unwavering focus and determination. The uncanny alignment of resolve, talent, opportunity, and luck required makes this goal nearly untenable.
There is, however, an only slightly less spectacular and much more attainable goal one can achieve. There exists a WKF rankings list which contains the names of every karate athlete to ever compete in any international tournament since the inception of the WKF.
At first glance, there seems to be a lot of names in the USA drop down menu. But considering it spans nearly twenty years, it is really a sparse group. Not every one who is good enough to be on Team USA can be, but everyone good enough can make the rankings.WORDS BY ANNABELLE CAMER.
