Matsubayashi-Ryu

Matsubayashi-Ryu (Okinawa Shorin-Ryu), is a style of Okinawan Karate founded in 1947 by Shoshin Nagamine. Its curriculum includes 18 kata, seven two-man yakusoku kumite (prearranged sparring) routines, and kobudō (weapons) practice.

Nagamine named his style in honor of the two most important masters that his teachings were based upon, Sokon Matsumura of Shuri-te, and Kosaku Matsumora of Tomari-te.
