Our Dojo specifically preserves the teachings of two of Sensei Chojo Oshiro's students, Sensei Shinei Kyan (Matsubayashi-ryu Kobudo derived from Yamane-ryu Kobudo), and Sensei Hiroshi Kinjo (Yamane-ryu Kobudo).
Sensei Shinei Kyan taught kobudo to many of the senior Matsubayashi-ryu instructors in the Nagamine Dojo, including 2nd Soke Takayoshi Nagamine, Sensei Toshimitsu Arakaki, Sensei Iwao Tome and Sensei Tsugio Miyagi.
Our Dojo is a Charter Dojo of the Yamane-ryu Division of the International Ryukyu Karatejutsu Research Society under Sensei Patrick McCarthy, Hanshi 9th Dan. Sensei McCarthy was a direct student of Sensei Kinjo. Yamane-ryu in Australia is under the direction of Shihan Bill Johansen from the Brisbane Koryukan.
