Description of Pinan-Do Karate

Phoenix-Pinan

Pinan-Do was established through the collaborative efforts of the following martial artists: Sosai Donna Harris, Sosai Harry Harris, Sosai Tony Bennett, Sosai Mark Fryover, Sosai Randy Martin and Sosai Bill Parquette.

Each had witnessed the loss of the true purpose of the martial arts amongst other practitioners they knew. All agreed that they felt the need to create a style of martial arts that goes back to its original roots, and in doing so strengthens ones mind and body and brings purpose to our very existence.

The founders of Pinan-Do Karate blended the knowledge and experience of each of its creators to form the ultimate martial art. The techniques and Kata of Pinan-Do Karate can be traced back to great masters such as: Gischin Funakoshi (1868-1957), & Shigeru Nakumura. (1894-1969)

Gischin Funakoshi received training in Karate from Anko Itosu, who trained with Sokun Masurmur (1787-1890) also known as the father of modern Karate-do. Nakamura received training from Kentsu Yabu and Chomo Hanishiro both elite students of Itosu.

Nakamura later formed Okinawan Kenpo and Funakoshi formed Shotokan and was also credited with bringing Karate to mainland Japan. Mas Oyama (1923-1994) was a student of Gischin Funakoshi and later went on to form the style known as Kyokushin. The techniques, Kata, Weapons and Self-Defense techniques studied in Pinan-Do are a blend from these systems.

Pinan-Do translates to Peaceful Way and it is our goal to create a Peaceful Discipline where one can truly explore their strengths Physically, Mentally and Spiritually and in doing so discover their own true value. We believe that Karate should not be studied or promoted as a way to cause harm to others but rather as a way to unlock ones hidden strengths, and weaknesses and use these lessons to discover your individual purpose.
We believe that the experience we have gained is to be shared, as was the belief of the original Karate masters.

While most styles of karate are founded by one person, Pinan-Do is the result of a combination of experiences from six experienced martial artists, each of whom contributes their own unique interpretation, thus forming an exceptionally well-rounded study of the arts. As unique as the founders of Pinan-Do Karate are they share a common goal to be true to themselves and their students and always follow the way of Peace. PINAN-DO KARATE
