Goju-ryu karate, as the name suggests, is constructed based on the natural principle of blending "go" (hard) and "ju" (soft). It utilizes these elements interchangeably, adapting fluidly to the opponent's movements with versatile and adaptable techniques. Among traditional karate styles, Goju-ryu is known for preserving the primitive form of martial arts with great intensity, carrying the deep hues of ancient martial traditions.

Founded by the late Grandmaster Gogen Yamaguchi, the Karate-do Goju-kai, under the leadership of Yamaguchi Goshi Sensei, has further researched and developed the traditional techniques of Goju-ryu inherited from Grandmaster Gogen Yamaguchi. This work represents the condensed outcome of these efforts.

Emphasizing the martial aspect of karate, this production introduces various training methods, starting from fundamental exercises to defensive and offensive techniques such as blocks, punches, kicks, movements, and forms. It also includes the first-ever public presentation of traditional techniques in video format, encapsulating the essence of Goju-ryu karate.

Yamaguchi Goshi: Born on September 28, 1942, in Shinkyō, Manchuria, as the third son of Grandmaster Gogen Yamaguchi. Real name Yamaguchi Hiroshi. In 1950, his father founded the Asakusa Senzoku Dojo and established the All Japan Karate-do Goju-kai. Goshi began formal karate training at the Asakusa Senzoku Dojo at the age of eight. He progressed through the ranks, achieving first dan in 1957, second dan in 1959, and third dan in 1962, becoming an instructor. In 1963, he enrolled in the Film Department of the Nihon University College of Art and conducted karate instruction for a year at the American branch during his studies. After graduation in 1969, he continued teaching at various branches of the Goju-kai, becoming the chief instructor of the headquarters dojo in 1969. Since then, he has served as an authorized instructor for the Goju-kai, the All Japan Karate-do Federation, and the Tokyo Karate-do Federation, as well as an international referee, visiting over 40 countries worldwide to teach.

In 1990, following the passing of his father, Grandmaster Gogen Yamaguchi, Goshi Yamaguchi assumed the position of President of the All Japan Karate-do Goju-kai. He concurrently became President of the International Karate-do Goju-kai and has since served as the highest instructor of both organizations, dedicating himself to the promotion and development of Goju-ryu karate.

Since Traditional Goju Ryu was a special order shipped out of Japan. I had my thoughts but I wanted them anyway. Shipping was perfect! DVD was much less expensive than Amazon or eBay and much quicker!!!! Getting Ready to order Gosai Yamaguchi’s other 4 DVD’s!!! DVD was well put together!

Goes into the depths of non-competition techniques

The DVD is broadly in three parts
1. Bunkai kumite, where bunkai of a sequence of moves is shown in different speeds, angains 1-3 apponents attacking at the same time
2. Kumite with traditional techniques not used or allowed in competitions, like kicks to the knees, punches to the throat and other traditional techniques
3. Exercises with the belt as a resistance

The DVD is not an instructional DVD but should be used as a reference or for new ideas for the advanced Goju practitioner or teacher.
It is quality content of the highest level for a limited audience.
