Welcome to the IOGKF Brazil website.

The IOGKF is in Brazil since 2011 under the leadership of Sensei Zé Mário (4ºdan) and has its hombu-dojo located in the state of Espírito Santo (São Mateus, Guriri).

The IOGKF Brazil goal is to preserve and disseminate the traditional karate, in its original form, tracing back to Chojun Miyagi Bushi, founder of Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate-do which has been passed down to us from Morio Higaonna Sensei, IOGKF Supreme Master (Saiko Shihan) 10th dan, and also from the new generation, Tetsuji Nakamura Sensei,IOGKF World Chief Instructor (Shuseki Shihan) 7ºdan.

IOGKF Brazil promotes Martial Arts seminars and events for its members so that they improve their knowledge and subsequently also help spread the Goju-Ryu Karate-do.

IOGKF Brazil welcomes all potential new members who want to join our family of Karate-do. Please, contact us!
