Our dojo is dedicated to the practice of Shobayashi
Shorin Ryu as taught by Eizo Shimabukuro in Okinawa.
Grandmaster Robert Inferrera, 9th Dan, is a first generation student of O Sensei Shimabukuro and began his studies while
stationed on Okinawa as a U.S. Marine during the early 1960's. On returning to the United States, Sensei Infererra
was given the task of spreading the art of Shobayashi Shorin Ryu and established his first dojo in Connecticut in 1964.
There are many great teachers in the martial arts that can be credited back to Sensei Inferrera’s lineage, which is a
testament to his true devotion to Shobayashi Shorin Ryu.
