The Shima-ha Shorin-ryu Karate Federation kicked off their training camp July 30 at the Okinawa Budo-kan, assembling approximately 130 karate-ka from eight countries and regions outside of Okinawa including China, the U.S., Germany, Denmark, and South America.

The training camp is scheduled to last one week, until August 5. People who study other styles of karate also participated, learning to use and move their body in a familiar way expanding on their style of karate.

The Shima-ha Shorin-ryu Karate Federation gathers students from all over the world about once every three years for a training camp.

Master Toshihiro Oshiro, one of the instructors teaching at the camp, emphasized, “I want the students to go home having learned what kind of martial arts and techniques have been passed down from ancient Japan.

These basic movements lead to some of the most advanced ones.”

Florian Fischer (34), who came from Munich, Germany to take part in the camp, said smiling, “In my 25 years since starting karate, I have had around 100 students.

[At the camp] I would like to learn advanced techniques.

This is also a great chance to meet people from different countries and have valuable interactions.

” With regard to karate, Fischer added, “Even after learning one thing, there is always another level.

I would love to get even a little bit close to Master Oshiro.”
