The history of our school is...
Our school began in 1977 in Harlem Hospital Auxditorium with the instruction given by Hanshi Zumar X Mayo Direct student of Grand Master Major Leon Wallace to Student Lord Utmost who eventually opened a school in St. James Park Community Center, and after leaving the school as a gift to his teacher, opened a school on cape cod in 1999. Hanshi is presently looking to his Black Belts to open schools of their own..
The history of our style is...
During the 14th century is introduced into Okinawa. It wins popularity and is trained as an art of self-defence, under the name of 'tote' (= chinese hand). At Okinawa the native fighting art 'te' was practised long before the introduction of kempo. It is believed that 'te' was combined with 'kempo' by the Okinawans and developed to the martial art karate. When Japan invades Okinawa 1609 the ban of carrying weapons (first pronounced by king Sho Shin in 1477) continues, but the Japanese also bans the practise of martial arts. Consequently, the Okinawans must continue with martial arts in secrecy. During the next three centuries the martial art develops into its own character and is called 'Okinawa te'. It is split into three main styles: Shuri-te influenced by the hard techniques of kempo and characterized by an offensive attitude. Naha-te influenced by the softer tehcniques of kempo including breath control and 'ki'. It was characterized by a more defensive attitude with grappling, throws and locking techniques. Tomari-te influenced by both the hard and soft techniques of kempo. In the ending of the 19th century Shuri-te and Tomari-te were subsumed under the name Shorin ryu, which during the years has developed into several slightly different styles. Naha-te becomes known under the name Goju ryu (the hard and soft style) and has remained basically unified.
