Okinawan Goju-Ryu made it's way to The Bahamas almost 20 years ago and today, there are over 500
Okinawan Goju Karatekas in The Bahamas, who train
under either Elrick McKinney of The Bahamas Karate Academy (Nassau), or Joye Ritchie-Greene of The Bahamas Martial Arts Academy (Freeport).
Karate is an exellent way to teach self-discipline and
develop self-esteem. At each of our karate schools
young, and not so young karatekas are taught to
develop their minds, bodies and spirits.
It is our aim at Okinawan Goju-Ryu to develop each
karateka physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Karatekas are therefore taught the importance of
self-discipline and respect for self and others as he/she practices in earnest each week.
