History

Sokon "Bushi" Matsumura developed Shorin Ryu after beginning his training at age 9.
Shorin Ryu, simply put, is the most effective and elite martial art forged IN battle FOR battle as 
Matusumura was bodyguard to 3 Okinawan kings and trained the palace guards.  

Legacy Shorin Ryu has an unbroken lineage to these roots and most specifically to Matsumura, the founder of Shorin Ryu Karate. With kata and lessons dating back to the 1700s in Okinawa and earlier, Legacy Shorin Ryu was developed by warriors - men and women whose lives depended on what they did actually working in the real world. It was not a sport and not an excercise. It was a life and death practice.

All of the best strikers in the MMA understand this -- Karate, born out of actual combat, is the only real way to learn how to hit effectively. They also understand that the classical roots train their minds, as well as their bodies, and that many striking techniques are actually hidden grappling techniques as well
