After the independence from the Karate school of the master Gohgen Yamaguchi (Gouryu Karate-do), the master Yamamoto, the director of Kanda Renseikan, opened his own school as âAll Japan Karate-Do Associationâ in front of Ueno station in Taito ward, Tokyo.
Since then he is making efforts to spread Gojuryu Karate-Do at the school in front of Akihabara Station in Chiyoda ward, Tokyo, as well as in various parts of Japan. As a master of the IKO (International Karate-Do Organization), he is also training many instructors abroad, such as in Taiwan (The Republic of China), Singapore, Australia, The United States, Portugal, Italy, Iran and all around the world.
On April 19th, 2003, the master Yamamoto opened the Kanda Renseikan School in Sotokanda, Chiyoda ward, Tokyo, as the administrative school of the IKO.
In the Edo period (1600 â 1868), there were a lot of military (martial) art schools in this area, such as of Shusaku Chiba (Kendo) and Toranosuke Shimada (Kendo), and many experts in this art had gathered from every region of the country.
On this Kanda Rensei street is our Kanda Renseikan School, which is now directed by the master Gonnohyoue Yamamoto who is also takes command of the IKO.
