Matsubayashi Shorin Ryu International is not another branch or organisation of Matsubayashi – Ryu or any other style, we are unique.
The Matsubayashi Shorin Ryu Ireland Karate-do Association is a group of dojo and students that have chosen to follow the teaching of Beaumont Sensei. Techniques are performed in a manner that results in the greatest speed and power possible without causing injury or harm to the person performing them. Over the last thirty years karate has been practised in the Hombu dojo and affiliate dojos in a traditional way focusing on the needs of the student and the importance of preserving the ‘old ways’ resulting in an organisation that can truly boast the quality of instructors and students
