The Director and Senior Instructor Barry Wake teaches all classes.  Barry started his martial arts training in 1972. He has been teaching classes and seminars for over 47 years.  

Members of Budo Kai Karate Do, Shorin Ryu Karate Do International, Okinawa Matsusokan Traditional Karate Association, United States Martial Artist Association, and the United States Martial Arts Association.

Mr. Wake’s focus of study has been Shorinryu Matsubayashiryu Karate, Shorinryu Kobayashiryu Karate, and Kobudo, Kohokan Konanryu Karate, Kobudo and Hakutsuru (White Crane). 

He has also studied Isshinryu Karate, Kyokushin Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Judo, Ju Jitsu, Boxing and Kickboxing.

He has been very fortunate to have been able to train with some excellent, extremely accomplished instructors over the years. 

"Each one has taught me extremely important concepts and precepts that has had a major influence on the the way I practice and teach martial arts. It has been a Great Honor to train with these individuals, some for decades, some for hours."

Come and Train with us or if you would like to schedule a seminar in any aspect of Ryukyu Bujutsu, Core Martial Training, Common Sense Self Defense, specific kata training, bunkai (Practical Applications) etc. 

I think you will find our approach to bunkai exciting and enjoyable. 

These theories can be added to any martial arts system and enhance your training, and bring life to years of kata training that may have become less interesting to you. 

Kata (Prearranged Techniques) have many secrets built in. You can find them yourself with a little outside of the box thinking. We can share what we have found which may give you some ideas to work from. 

"Humility, Clear Mind, Smart - Focused Training, Perseverance, and Dedication, - the price to be paid for excellence. To achieve excellence and then not to pass that learning along, with wisdom, to future generations is a true tragedy. So much has been lost in time; don't loose hard earned knowledge intentionally unless there is no one able to receive it."
