Dojo Düsseldorf

European Centre for Okinawa Shorinryu Shidokan Karatedo

Karate shapes body and mind

Regular exercise leads to inner stability.

Skills such as self-awareness, self-assertion, and self-defense grow from the intense study of our martial arts. It can be practiced into old age. On Okinawa, 70-year-old karateka are common.

The study of martial arts always includes a "dual path": struggle and non-combat. Closely related are ethics, philosophy and culture of Okinawa Shorinryu Shidokan Karatedo.

Practicing Okinawa Shorinryu Shidokan Karatedo is a way of personal and social development. Everybody could develop his potential.

Our maxim

"Following the reason and the law, living in community, blossoming together.." We are practicing together and we want to develop together.

Kata forms as well as fighting are practiced. Both are part of it, as well as self-defense, weapon combat (called Kobudo) and body shaping. Shorinryu is a smooth, but explosive karate style. We emphasize fast, powerful techniques, with high body tension and relaxation as well as mobility.

Everyone can join in, from the child to the senior. No matter if you are woman or man.
