The story of the International Goju-Ryu Sakura-Kai
Shihan Takeji Ogawa is one of the greatest personalities and living legends of Goju–Ryu Karate–Do.
His students from Slovakia, Ukraine, Belgium, Switzerland and Hungary established International Goju-Ryu Karate–Do Sakura–Kai in his honour in 2007 in order to keep Shihan Takeji Ogawa’s techniques and doctrines alive and make it officially available for younger generation. In addition it is supposed to develop professional and personal relationships of Shihan students living in different countries.
In 2013. shihan Takeji Ogawa withdrew from Sakura-Kai in consideration of his age. In 24. 06. 2014. the International Goju-Ryu Karate-Do Sakura-Kai is getting into Okinawa Goju-Ryu Karate–Do Ken Pou Kai organization. From this time we continue our activities lead by Hanshi Yoshio Kuba, 10th dan.
