Shorin Ryu Kyudokan Karate

Welcome to the official web page of Shorin Ryu Kyudokan Karate do Sri Lanka & Australia.

Okinawan Shorin Ryu Kyudokan School, known as the Higa Family School of Karate-do, is a traditional Karate school recognized all over the world for its history, lineage and traditions handed down over the centuries.

The Kyudokan Karate School was founded by late Grandmaster Yuchoku Higa, one of the renown 10th Dan Karate masters in the world. Handed down from generation to generation, kyudokan has advanced its technical content and dynamics, without losing the spirit of its roots to the forefathers of Karate.


Some of the basic features of the school are as follows:

  • The Mi Wo Mamoru principle: the concept of defending and protecting (sheltering) the body.
  • The Marumi-Muchimi principle: circularity of movement and the conclusion of the technique at its maximum level.
  • Principle of yin and yang.
  • Development of Ki (energy) by means of the circular work of Hara (tandem).
  • Kokyu: The rule of abdominal breathing.
