Isshin Ryu 一心流 can be translated as the One Heart Way. Grandmaster Tatsuo Shimabuku gave his style this name on January 15, 1956.

Everything begins with one. A person’s heart is the most important part.

Happy Lunar New Year!

2022 is Year of the Tiger 虎.

The first line of Isshin Ryu’s Karate Code is:
A person’s heart is the same as heaven and earth.

Earth is represented by the Tiger and it appears in headdress of Isshin Ryu’s Goshujin-Sama. As the Tiger rises out of the water, may its strength and braveness bring prosperity in the coming year!

The dragon represents Isshin Ryu founder Tatsuo Shimabuku 島袋 龍夫, fighting spirit, and occupies the heavens.
