Our Philospohy

To provide a modern and exciting Karate system in the Shito-Ryu style, honouring the Shukokai school and teachings of Soke Tani Chojiro.

Shushokan comes from the statement shusho ichi no otoshi which can be translated as ‘effort and result are one’. This is our core teaching, the basis of our philosophy.

Shushokan was founded in Japan in August 2007.
