Mission Statement

Okinawan-Shorinryu.com is owned and operated by Dr. Michael Cox who is solely responsible for the contents herein.

The mission and function of this web site is to inform the public about the art of Shorin-Ryu, Matsubayashi-Ryu Karate. I will gladly post links to any Matsubayashi-Ryu organization that adheres to and follows Grand Master Nagamine's teachings. However I will not knowingly link sites with instructors of dubious qualifications, instructors who are convicted felons, or schools actively or passively endorsing such behavior(s). I will not engage in, or otherwise be part of, purposeless political infighting or discussions. I will not attack, ridicule or belittle any student or instructor. Likewise E-mails directed to this site containing any of the above material will not be acknowledged or responded to.

Any and all constructive criticisms and/or suggestions are both welcomed and solicited.

This web site is dedicated to two people;

Grand Master Nagamine Shoshin and the school and style he created.

Renshi Samuel Palmer, the man who introduced an 18 year old boy to Matsubayashi-Ryu Karate-Do and guided him with patience and understanding.

As long as I have control of this site I will not allow anyone or anything to tarnish the memory of my deceased teachers nor will I bring shame on future teachers or the style we all represent.
