The E.G.K.A

We are members of the English Goju Ryu Karate Association. The EGKA is a non-profit making organisation dedicated to preserving and teaching the traditional Okinawan martial art of Goju-Ryu Karate in England.

EGKA qualified instructors teach to the highest standards, which is recognised through the long standing association with the International Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate-Do Federation (IOGKF), a respected international karate organisation headed by Karate master, Shihan Morio Higaonna (10th Dan) based in Okinawa, Japan.

The I.O.G.K.F

The International Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate-do Federation (IOGKF) is one of the finest, traditional karate organizations in the world today. Under the leadership of our master, Sensei Morio Higaonna, 10th dan , the IOGKF is committed to preserving the intangible cultural treasure of Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate-do , which has been passed down to us in its original form from one generation to the next.

Since its establishment in 1979, the IOGKF has attracted culturally diverse martial arts practitioners from around the world, who have joined the organization after recognizing the authenticity and excellence of the IOGKF and its direct karate lineage tracing back to Bushi Chojun Miyagi, the founder of Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate-do.
