Story
Tagline
Patrick McCarthy - IRKRS Director
Introduction
I'm a Japan-accredited Karate instructor [Hanshi 9th Dan/範士9段], writer and founding director of the International Ryukyu Karate Research Society/琉球唐手術国際研究会. My publications include, ‘The Bubishi,” “Classical Kata of Okinawan Karate,” “Ancient Okinawan Martial Arts, Volumes 1 & 2,” “Tales of Okinawa’s Great Masters,” “Tanpenshu”  [Funakoshi Gichin's Finest Work], “Karate, My Art” [Motobu Choki's Finest Work], numerous articles/papers, etc., and a collection of educational DVDs, which focus upon the nature and application of my historical and technical studies of, “The Old-Ways.

Originally from Canada I migrated to Japan during the mid 1980’s, married and spent many years there before relocating to Oz in 1995. I’ve studied the fighting arts since childhood and decided early on, “To live my dream,” and I was able to successfully transform a passion into a profession and have never regretted taking that chance. Now, I’m dedicated to helping other like-minded enthusiasts better understand the traditional art of Karate and live, "their dream."
