 Karate techniques are similar in most Styles. It's the system in which they are taught, that identifies a Style. As with all teaching systems a known syllabus is important. Funakoshi Ryu has a structured sequential training system. Incorporated into our system is the science of Kinetics and Bio Mechanics. Kinetics is the study of the forces that produce, arrest or modify the motions of the body. Kinetics is the application of Newton’s first and third law of inertia to body dynamics.

In exercise and sport, bio-mechanics a sub-division of dynamics dealing with the study of the forces causing or tending to cause changes at which reactions proceed.


The central starting point or foundation of Funakoshi Ryu, is our Kamae stance.

This Kamae stance is more than a fighting position, it contains accurate head, body, arms, hands, leg & feet positions. This stance is a study by itself. All training techniques start from this position. This Kamae is used in all our training systems. Kihon, Saiten Kentai Waza, Shi-ho Geri Waza, Kata and Kumite. Many Styles have copied this Kamae and yet it is not in their Kihon and Kata.

This stance is an aggressive and defensive position. One could say this stance identifies Funakoshi Ryu.

In 1966 Funakoshi Ryu introduced to the Karate world our unique Junior Karate ranking system. All junior ranks wear a white stripe through their belts, and the awarding of Junior Black Belts, with a white stripe through the belt.


Funakoshi Ryu has excellent training systems, with great emphasis placed on the detail and perfection of all Kihon techniques.

Our unique advanced Black Belt training syllabus caters for the advancement of karateka through the higher Dan rankings.


Funakoshi Ryu is an on going Style always looking to improve and advance with new Systems & Techniques.


The method used to train an Athlete 50 years ago, cannot be compared to the methods taught today.
