An opportunity to train for two full days with Yoshio Kuba Sensei, Goju Ryu 10th Dan Hanshi and one of the world’s foremost experts on the applications of Goju Ryu Kata

Cost US
Tuition and Dojo Fees for three days. $245 Before April 1st, $295 thereafter.



Kuba Sensei’s dedication to karate is absolute which makes this dynamic and charismatic instructor the very best person to teach these rarely seen elements of Goju Ryu! He was a senior student of Seikichi Toguchi Sensei, (a protege of Goju Ryu’s founder, Chojun Miyagi), and eventually assumed his position as chief instructor of his organization.

Kuba Sensei is also a professional acupuncture therapist which gives him a profound understanding of the body’s vulnerable points, and how they can be easily used to control and/or subdue an opponent. He has been a member of the Classical Fighting Arts Magazine Seminar faculty since 2010, and has taught ten seminars for us to date.


The Tenchi Martial Arts Center is a state-of-the-art purpose build 11,000 sq.ft. facility made up of two large dojo, a smaller dojo for private tuition, study areas, lounges, changing rooms and reception. It is particularly suitable for this event because Kuba Sensei wants to encourage the study of Goju Ryu auxiliary exercises (hojo undo) as they are the key to really powerful techniques.

The equipment used for hojo undo is heavy, cumbersome, and difficult to transport. However, the Tenchi Dojo is already generously equipped with sanchin gaami, ishisashi, ch’ishi, kongo ken, etc. which makes it one of the most unique training facilities in the U.S.



During the three days of seminars in Georgia on May 20-22, attendees will study Goju Ryu kata and its applications, together with the related auxiliary training methods (hojo undo) using traditional equipment. It is his belief that the power of kata bunkai are greatly amplified by the close study of these training methods that come down to us from the Founder of Goju Ryu, Chojun Miyagi Sensei. In addition to a full selection of first class hojo undo equipment, Tenchi Dojo also boasts a large number of makiwara, punch bags, and other equipment.

Attendees are requested to register in advance so that we can make adequate arrangements for those who attend. Please wear a standard type karate uniform for training, and be warmed up and ready before the class starts.



Chattanooga, TN is approximately 25 mins by car from the dojo, and there are also local hotels in the immediate area.

When we know how many will be attending this event, we will negotiate with local hotels to obtain a group rate.

Event President:
Yoshio Kuba Sensei, Goju Ryu 10th Dan.

Yoshio Kuba Sensei began his study of karate in Okinawa at the age of fifteen in the Shorei Kan Dojo of Seikichi Toguchi. He then attended Meijo University in mainland Japan where he studied pharmacology followed by acupuncture in Osaka, returning to Okinawa at the age of 26.

Kuba Sensei is well-known for his mastery of the applications of the Goju Ryu kata, and his ability to apply them to great effect. Being an acupuncture therapist undoubtedly gives him a advantage in this field. He owns and operates a medical clinic in Okinawa City specializing in the treatment of pain.
