KAMISHIN RYU HISTORY &
The first purpose in the study of Kamishin Ryu Karate, is the cultivation of a spirit of humility. At the same time, the ability and strength sufficient to overcome an attacker should be developed. Becoming a true exponent of Kamishin Ryu Karate Do is only possible when one reaches perfection in both these aspects, one of them spiritual, the other physical. It must be stressed that both of these aspects must be developed side by side, for if the physical side is not balanced with the spiritual side, Karate degenerates into brutality and violence. The constant struggle in coming to terms with the requirements of the training helps to forge a spirit of perseverance and has a positive effect on the demeanour of the individual.
