Kosho Shorei Ryu Kempo 


 Masayoshi Mitose ( James Mitose ) –  21st Great Grand Master of Kosho-ryū Kempo

 Born on December 30, 1916 ,Hawaii, U.S., Died on March 26, 1981, California.

System  : Kenpo-Ju-Jitsu, Kosho-ryū Kenpo, Kosho Shorei-ryū Kenpo

Mitose ultimately called his style Kosho Shorei-Ryū Kenpo, which can be translated as "Old Pine Tree School Kung-Fu".Matsumura Sōkon's style, which he taught to Ankō Itosu who taught it to Gichin Funakoshi and Motobu Chōki, was OkinawanShōrin-ryū, which is often translated as "Little Pine Forest School". When Mitose first began teaching in 1936, he called his art Kenpo-Jiu-Jitsu ("Kung-Fu flexible technique") and would later refer to it as Shorinji Kempo (a Japanese translation of "Shaolin Kung-Fu") or Go Shin Jitsu ("Self-defence technique"). The word "Shorin" is characteristic of styles from Okinawa, although in modern times "Shorinji Kempo" is used to refer to an unrelated Japanese martial sect founded by Doshin So in 1947.

Kempo is a system of self defense but more importantly, Kempo is a practice of how one would conduct their behavior and lifestyle when dealing with those things around us.   Kempo is a constant study of personal growth in the martial, cultural, and healing arts. A Kempo student learns to blend with others to survive and live in a peaceful and harmonious society
