Welcome to the Shorin Ryu Karate Academy

Nagamine-5

Grandmaster Shoshin Nagamine

The Shorin Ryu Karate Academy meets at the YMCA in Grove City, PA, and is open to anyone 13 years and older who is interested in training in traditional martial arts. We train specifically in Matsubayashi Shorin Ryu, a traditional Okinawan karate system created by Grandmaster Shoshin Nagamine.

We welcome people from a wide range of karate and martial arts training backgrounds, from beginners with no martial arts training to experienced martial artists. Our core curriculum is traditional Shorin Ryu karate, and we enthusiastically share the heritage of Okinawan karate with all who are interested in seriously studying this dynamic and historic martial art.

Please browse our website to learn more about us, and we invite you to try out a karate training session to see if Shorin Ryu Karate Academy is right for you and your family (ages 13 and above). We hope to see you “on the deck” soon!
