Shorin-ryu Dojo Shotokyo is an independent dojo propagating traditional Okinawan Shorin-ryu Karatedo, in downtown Los Angeles, CA. We are a non-commercial dojo, practicing out of the social hall of Centenary United Methodist Church. Although not religiously affiliated with the church, we have strong ties with the Little Tokyo and surrounding Japanese American community, throughout which Centenary has historically played a major role. We train in a familial - yet traditionally disciplined - atmosphere, and frequently contribute to local events in our community, sharing our cultural art through demonstrations and workshops.

The dojo's traditional curriculum is firmly grounded in basics, including eighteen kata (Fukyugata 1-2, Pinan 1-5, Naihanchi 1-3, Ananku, Wankan, Rohai, Wanshu, Passai, Gojushiho, Chinto, Kusanku) and seven yakusoku kumite as handed down by Nagamine Shoshin.
