goju ryu
Goju ryu is one of the main traditional Okinawan styles of karate, featuring a combination of hard and soft techniques. Both principles, hard and soft, come from the famous martial arts book Bubishi used by Okinawan masters during the 19th and 20th centuries. Go which means hard, refers to closed hand techniques or straight linear attacks; Ju which means soft, refers to open hand techniques and circular movements.
Famous practitioners of Goju Ryu: Aaron Banks, Chuck Merriman, Cynthia Luster, Glenn Keeney, Gogen Yamaguchi, Jeff Speakman, Louis Delgado, Michael Jai White, Morio Higaonna, Peter Urban, Ron van Clief, Sonny Chibai, Steve Sanders, Taimak, Tatsuo Shimabuku, William Louie
