Welcome to the Northwest branch of the OSMKKF. The OSMKKF hombu is in Okinawa City, Okinawa and is headed by Master Fusei Kise. The NorthWest Budokan was founded by 7th Degree Black Belt, Kyoshi Jay Gravelle and is based in Everett, WA. Classes are taught at locations in the Everett, Mukilteo and Monroe area north of Seattle, WA. Okinawa Shorin-ryu Matsumura Seito is a very traditional style of karate and is taught with a "Real World" attitude for today's world rather then tournament style. No long stances or high kicks! We teach a range of traditional aspects; empty hand karate, kata (forms), tuite (self-defense/joint locks), bag work, one steps, kick drills, change body and kobudo (weapons).
