The Okinawan Kojo-Ryu Koshinkan Kyokai is a seperate and independent organization intrusted with passing on and preserving the Kojo Ryu Karate of the famous Kojo (Koshiro) family of Okinawa. We are also dedicated to the preservation of Chibana-Ha Shorin Ryu and the Yamanni (Yamane) Ryu Bojutsu of Shugoro Nakazato, Hanshi 10th Dan and Nakazato Sensei's Kobudo. The association also teaches the family Samurai Jujitsu as passed down from Iwamatsu Hoshiyama.
