Chojiro Tani began teaching the Karate style Shukokai (meaning the way for all) at a dojo in Kobe, Japan in 1946. Shukokai was designed around the study of body mechanics, is very fast due to itsrelatively high stance aiding mobility, and is known for the double hip twist, which maximizes the force of its strikes; making it one of the hardest-hitting Karate styles. Tani's most senior student, Sensei Shigeru Kimura, left Japan in 1965 to teach Shukokai in Africa.

Wing Chun is a concept based system of fighting theory that once understood, can be applied to any style, method or approach, therefore it is without limitation. Whatever you currently practice, youcan use its theory to improve your skills. The one problem we all face, when learning to fight, is being comfortable at close proximity to aggressive force and attitude. Wing Chun develops fighting skill predominately at this range.
