Kamiya Jinsei (1894 – 1964)

Like everyone around the world I am experiencing the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Although regular practice has ground to a halt, I consider myself fortunate that I am healthy and continue to work and train from home. Since I have been given this gift of time I decided to temporarily restart my blog to provide some light reading to the Okinawa Karate-do and Kobudo Community. I have one request and that is if you would like to share the article you are welcome to do so. However, please share the link and not cut and paste the articles in their entirty. The first entry below is about Goju-ryu and Kobudo expert Kamiya Jinsei. The next article will be about his grandson Kamiya Masashi. Enjoy. (more…)

Kamiya Masashi

Here is the second article about Kamiya Masashi, Kamiya Jinsei’s grandson. I think his story is inspirational. Enjoy.

Following his Magnificent Grandfather’s two Paths: Medicine and Martial art. Kamiya Masashi, Director of Kamiya Clinic for Mother and Child.

Kamiya Masashi

One of the best students of the founder of Goju-ryu, Chojun Miyagi (1888-1953), was Kamiya Jinsei (1894-1964). Just like the man who also made a name for himself in paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology in Itoman, his grandson, Kamiya Masashi (58) is also a karateka who works as an obstetrician and gynaecologist at the “Kamiya Clinic for Mother and Child“.
