Jyoshinmon Shorin-Ryu Karate has been operating in Auckland since 1971 as well as being taught in over 20 countries world wide. Jyoshinmon Shorin-Ryu was founded by Soke Hoshu Ikeda in 1969 who based the style on the teachings of Kyan Chotoku, one of the original masters or Shorin-Ryu Karate.
Shihan David Bennett was one of the first students in New Zealand having started in 1971 and is now the head instructor for Jyoshinmon Shorin-Ryu within New Zealand. We are a very family focused style with 3 generations of the Bennett Family all currently training and teaching at The Dojo. Our classes throughout the week are setup in such a way that parents can choose to train in the same class as their children if they so wish.
Jyoshinmon Shorin-Ryu is a founding member of Karate New Zealand, the governing body for Karate in New Zealand. We continue to achieve success competitively with National, Oceania and Commonwealth Champions.
