We are TOGKF members!
Last year, TOGKF - Traditional Okinawa Goju Ryu Karate Do Federation was named by Higaonna Morio Sensei in Okinawa.
OGKQld by way of our very own OGKAA (Okinawan Goju-ryu Karate Association Australia) became the world first member of the TOGKF.
We would like to thank Higaonna Sensei for his life long dedication to Okinawa Goju-ryu and we are honoured to be welcomed into the TOGKF.
Joseph Tait Sensei in Japan and Geoff Tait Sensei in Australia have worked closely with Richard Gale Sensei to ensure our inclusion of the TOGKF for the benefit of all our students.
Dan grades will now be assessed in Australia and approved by the TOGKF in Okinawa. This is an extremely important aspect of our authenticity moving forward.
Thank you to Richard Sensei for collaborating with Geoff Sensei and successfully sealing a future for our traditional ways.
