Traditional Okinawan Goju Ryu as taught by Higaonna MORIO Sensei

Traditional Okinawa Goju Ryu Karate-do is a challenging art. It will test you emotionally, mentally, and physically. But like anything in life the more you put into it, the more you will gain. Through dedicated practice you will become physically strong, and mentally and emotionally resilient. Developing your character, mind, and body is a key goal of the TOGKF.

The TOGKF is the guardian of Traditional Okinawa Goju Ryu as it was passed to Higaonna Sensei, and as such, we see it not as a sport, but as a whole way of life. And that is our emphasis: the whole. The goal is to enrich every aspect of who you are.

Who are we?

The Traditional Okinawa Goju Ryu Karate do Federation is a vehicle used by Goju Ryu practitioners to spread Higaonna Morio Sensei’s vision of Okinawa Goju Ryu karate do around the world.
