Our Mission

Samurai are Dojo of Kimura Shukokai International, which is the official world governing body formed by the most senior students of Shigeru Kimura. Our Dojo are schools dedicated to providing our members with elite martial arts instruction that emphasises self-discipline and respect for others.

Kimura Shukokai Style

Kimura Shukokai is a form of Karate that seeks to master fighting techniques using only the human body. Modern-day Kimura Shukokai was established by Shigeru Kimura, who travelled throughout the world - including South Africa - developing his own version of Shukokai, which emphasises the release of explosive energy and challenges modern conceptions of body mechanics.

Classes are open to everyone from four years old, regardless of gender or physical ability. Anyone can become an exemplary member of Samurai as long as he or she has the desire to do so.

"In all endeavours, be humble and polite. In all dealings, be neither too proud, nor too modest. In all training, be aware of your physical presence and strength. Practise earnestly and with creativity, with patience and quiet dedication. Be determined always to improve. Have full awareness of your health and body. Live a plain life. Be honest with yourself and those around you. Have no doubt, let no tension hold you." - Dojo Kun (code)
