we are an Endo-Kan Shibu Dojo

Under the guidance and direction of Dr. Tony D’Angelo, DMQ, Kyoshi, Magnus Karate is proudly an Endo-Kan shibu dojo (affiliate dojo).

Endo Kan Dojo (The Circular Way) was created to honor the teachings of William R Hayes, Sensei, a senior student of Grand Master Eizo Shimabukuro. This Dojo researches the concepts and principles of Shobayashi-ryu Karate Do. The Endo Kan Mon (Seal or Patch) was designed to represent an esoteric concept contained within its teachings. The symbolism of the Endo Kan Mon will be broken down so we can understand its complex meaning.

Tranquil Cloud Temple, located in New Lenox, IL, houses the headuqrters of the Endo Kan Honbu Dojo. The Endo Kan teaches classical Shobayashi-ryu Karate Do with a direct lineage to the founder Grand Master Eizo Shimabukuro. .

 

Shobayashi Shorin Ryu

Magnus Karate’s primary style of instruction is Classical Okinawan Shorin Ryu (Shobayashi Ryu specifically).

Shorin-Ryu Karate finds its roots from the old form of toute-jutsu that had been cultivated and practiced in Okinawa before the 20th century. Heavily influenced by the Chinese martial arts, Shorin-ryu, most influential figure was Soken “Bushi” Matsumura (1797-1889). The four main branches of Shorin-ryu that exist today ( 1) Kobayashi -small forest, 2) Shobayashi – young forest, 3) Matsubayashi – pine forest and 4) Matsumura Seito) can be traced back to him.

More than blocking, kicking and punching,€“ Shorin-ryu comprises of a multitude of fighting techniques including; joint manipulation (kansetsu waza), pinning/restraining techniques (katame waza), seizing nerves, attacking tendons, grappling (tuidi waza), attacking anatomically vulnerable points (kyusho-jutsu), strangulation and choking techniques (shime waza), sweeping and throwing techniques (nage waza), ground fighting techniques (ne waza) and countering attacks (gyaku waza). 

Shobayashi-ryu KamonShobayashi Shorin-ryu (Shaolin-way) is a style of Okinawan Shorin-ryu karate founded by Chotoku Kyan and passed to Eizo Shimabukuro.
