YOUR HOST

Suguru TSUKAMOTO

Hello, my name is Suguru Tsukamoto, the head of the Tsukamoto dojo of Okinawa karate. I have been training in this traditional martial art since I was 13 years old, and now have over 20 years of experience. My path through karate changed when I was a student and took a summer vacation trip to Okinawa. It was there that I witnessed the original form of this legendary martial art and realized the difference between the traditional style of karate and what is widely practiced today. I have since studied and trained deeply in the art of Okinawa karate. I decided to open a dojo here in Tokyo in order to further spread the traditional Okinawa style of karate. My teaching motto is to instruct the pure form of karate to as many people as I can.

WHAT TO EXPECT

In this true martial experience be prepared to move your body as you train in the most traditional form of karate. Did you know that karate originates from the Okinawa islands in the south of Japan? Although karate has been officially registered as a sport for the 2020 Olympic games, the truth of the matter is that the karate of today differs greatly from its traditional Okinawa form. Learn from the source in this authentic Okinawa karate experience, all from the convenience of Tokyo. At the Tsukamoto dojo you will go over the training basics of warmup methods, stance, line drills, and finally “Kata” or forms. Steel your body and mind with this orthodox karate experience.
