Shotokai

Shotokai is the organization originally formed in 1930 by Gichin Funakoshi to teach and spread Karate-Do. The organization promotes a Karate style that complies with Funakoshi’s teachings, that contests are contrary to the Karate’s essence. The further development of the style is attributed to Gigo Funakoshi and Shigeru Egami.
