The Okinawa archipelago is a unique island in the Pacific, hosting the oldest people and the healthiest population in the world. But, as importantly, it is also the birthplace of karate.
The Goju style is characterized by a balance between strength and flexibility. This discipline is also a real school of life since it requires hard work, forbearance, rigor and steadfastness. Those qualities are transmitted by great masters, such as Hokama, who allowed this martial art to survive through centuries.
