SHORIN RYU

The core karate style of Jindokai is Shorin Ryu. Its antecedent form is as Shorin Ryu was practised in the Seidokan dojo of Shian Toma in Okinawa. Just as Shian Toma and his deputies have themselves, over the years, developed variations in practice, the Jindokai recognises that the style is not static. It therefore accepts variation but does so within a core rendition of the traditional kata, which may be said to emanate from kata practice within Toma-dojo in the mid to late-1980s. Promotion within Shorin Ryu is possible to 8 dan.

GOJU RYU

Goju Ryu is a subsidiary style taught within the Jindokai. It may be practised according to four recognised templates Miyazato, Toguchi, Shito Naha, and (up to 2012) WKF Goju. However, practitioners should not mix kata from these templates, i.e. the kata have to belong consistently to one of these templates as taught by a recognised Goju school of longstanding. However, the hombu style of Goju will be derived from the Miyazato template as expressed by the Jundokan of Okinawa. Promotion within Goju Ryu is possible to 4 dan.

SHOTOKAN

Shotokan is a subsidiary style taught within the Jindokai for both traditional and competition purposes. Accordingly, its kata performance criteria are drawn from any bona fide descendant group of the JKA for traditional practice and the JKF for competition practice. Promotion within Shotokan is possible to 4 dan.

KOBUDO

The weapons taught within Jindokai are reflective of Okinawan practice as found in Toma-dojo in the 1980s, and in the dojo of Seikichi Odo in the 1990s and early 2000s. The major weapons are taught, with at least two kata per weapon being available for tuition. Further kata may be taught utilising bo, as a weapon with universal characteristics and historical utility. Competence with weapons forms part of the Shorin Ryu syllabus and grading requirements. Otherwise, Kobudo is an elective. However, the Jindokai will not offer specialised Kobudo gradings.
