The Okinawan Goshin-Ryu Karate-Do Association was formulated by Dr. Juan Otero Jr. Hanshi. He has brought together over forty-two years of training experience, incorporating many aspects of his training in Japanese Goju-Ryu, Okinawan Goju-Ryu and Goshin-Ryu styles of Karate, as well as Ju-Jitsu and Swai-Jiao Kung Fu. His years of participation in seminars, workshops, camps and inter-dojo clinics with many Masters and Grandmasters have contributed to his expanded knowledge and ability to synthesize a formulized and complete style of martial arts, which he has aptly named “Goju Goshin-Ryu Karate”.
As validation to this style of Karate and martial art, the O.G.K.A. has been recognized as a legitimate style by many of the leading associations throughout the United States and the world. Included in these are: World Organization of Martial Arts ; World Professional MartialArts; United States Martial Arts Association; Mid-West Martial Arts Association; Florida League of Martial Artist, etc.
