Welcome to Goju-Shorei Systems

Goju-Shorei Means Hard, Soft, Clear Spirit. Our goal is to help you develop realistic self defense skills to use in any situation be it hand to hand, with a weapon or on the ground.

We're passionate about helping schools, students and instructors expand their knowledge and grow in the arts. Goju-Shorei is not meant to replace but rather add to your current system or become a new home for students who have no other place to train and grow.
“Spirit first, technique second.”
