NON-EXCLUSIVE MEMBERSHIP

Here’s a new idea:  Keep your current affiliations or establish new ones.
We don’t have sticky hands telling you what you can and can’t do. We are a support organization offering voluntary services that one can CHOOSE to use voluntarily.
Also:
• No exclusivity requirements
• Does not require that every student in your dojo be a member.
• Does not require that you use our testing requirements.
• Does not require membership to participate in events.

PROMOTING ALL ASPECTS OF KARATE

Karate means many thing to many different people.  Shuhari welcomes all styles and affiliations to explore a wide variety of topics – from technical to bunkai to competition, and everything in between.

PROFESSIONAL LEADERSHIP

Administratively managed by experienced dojo owners and business people. Technically driven by a diverse group of experts rather than one master.  Actively side-stepping the cult of personality to provide an innovative learning experience.

TECH SAVVY

Utilizing the latest in video documentation, online streaming, and social media to improve the dissemination of great ideas and improve our member experience.

TOP-LEVEL INSTRUCTORS

Shuhari is actively assembling a Technical Fellowship featuring the finest master-level instructors in the world.  Rather than looking to just one founder or expert for technical guidance, the Institute openly encourages the exploration and training with masters of diverse backgrounds and styles. Facilitating this freedom to associate drove the development of Shuhari’s unique leadership model. Stay tuned as we announce new instructors joining our Fellowship.
