The 9 Guiding Principles of Goju-Shorei

The 9 Guiding Principles of Goju-Shorei

and why they’re important


I’m going to discuss the 9 Guiding Principles of Goju-Shorei on this site. I struggle from time to time trying to follow them and I assume that I’m not alone.

First a little clarification; The reference to Family is because I consider all students or friends of Goju-Shorei to be family, as in – People who teach and train together become family – which is the translation of the kanji prominently displayed on the web…

Goju-Shorei Challenge Coin

Sensei Marta Azzam was the first person to receive the Goju-Shorei challenge coin. All Goju-Shorei Black Belts, whether in Karate, Weapons or Jujitsu will receive one of these coins for each of their Goju-Shorei Black Belts.

Challenge rules: If we are at a bar or restaurant and a Goju-Shorei challenge coin is presented all Goju-Shorei black belts must also present theirs. If a black belt does not have theirs they buy. On the other hand if all black belts have their coin then the challenger buys.

The coins are being mailed or given out now.

Having Fun

So as some of you know, I was forced to have back surgery in September.  By October I was completely off of pain meds, though after several years on that terrible stuff, withdrawals were a tough "street-fight".  Recently, after training, I've been needing an Aleve but not much else.  Yesterday I had a blast, center judging a tournament here in Las Vegas for about nine hours.  I haven't been on my feet that long, moved that much, or had as much fun in years.  Since then ... no pain!  NONE!!!  I think my back is healing. :)
