Shukokai Origin

                                                

 

                              Chojiro  Tani

       Founder of Shukokai (1921 - 1998)

 

 

The Shukokai school of karate was founded way back in 1946 by Chojiro Tani Sensei. 

 

He began his study of karate at junior high school practising Go Ju Ryu and continued his training at the Doshisha University in Kyoto where he studied under CHOJUN MIYAGI,   the great karate Master  (who was the founder of Go Ju Ryu and who had trained under HIGAONNA  Sensei).    Later when Sensei MIYAGI returned to Okinawa, TANI Sensei trained under KENWA MABUNI.

 

After the Second World War TANI Sensei started to teach Karate in an open air car park in the centre of Kobe.  His group (Shukokai) soon grew and one year later he built his own Dojo attached to his house.

 

In 1946 TANI Sensei was presented with the scroll of succession from MABUNI Sensei and was given permission to start up his own school: Tani-Ha Shito-Ryu.

 

On 13th April 1997,  several Dan Grades from SHOGUN (including myself) travelled down to Crystal Palace where we trained under TANI Sensei on a special course he was holding.  At the end of the course I had my photograph taken with him and he generously signed my Karate Licence.     What an honour !

 

Sadly,  Master TANI passed away in Kobe Hospital on Sunday 11th January 1998.  He was truly a legend in his own lifetime.
