Handmade exclusive calligraphy by Hokama Tetsuhiro Sensei.
Gōjū-ryū (剛柔流), Japanese for "hard-soft style", is one of the main traditional Okinawan styles of karate, featuring a combination of hard and soft techniques.
Both principles, hard and soft, come from the famous martial arts book used by Okinawan masters during the 19th and 20th centuries.
Gō, which means hard, refers to closed hand techniques or straight linear attacks; jū, which means soft, refers to open hand techniques and circular movements.
