Hokama Sensei provides an abundance of Okinawa Karate history within the mueseum and is a world-renowned karate master. If you are a true fan of Okinawa Karate, I would highly recommend a visit.

So much history. It was hard to take it all in. You are alowed to take pictures though. My wife and I were given the tour by Hokama Tetsuhro. What a treat, he was gracious and full of stories.

The Karate Museum, owned by Tetsuhiro Hokama Sensei, is an almost direct link to the golden age of Karate. Hokama Sensei has spent over 40 years compiling artefacts, documents, photographs, paintings, and lineage documenting the history of Okinawan Karate. Hokama Sensei himself was a student of Higa Sensei who trained with Chojun Miyagi. This is as close as the 21st century can get to the founder of Goju Ryu Karate, who is linked with the founder of Naha-Te, Kanryo Higashionna Sensei. He also learned his Kobudo directly from Matayoshi Sensei. Additionally he is a scholar of the martial arts and a celebrated calligrapher. This is a special place for training and history that is unique on the island.

The owner was really nice, we talked a lot about a lot of stuff. Okinawa history and how it changed over the years.

This museum was curated by a 10th Dan who still practices and teaches the Okinawan art of karate. His name is Tetsuhiro Hokama and, he will gladly show you his Dojo and give a guided tour of the facility while sharing some of the history of the martial arts.
