The Shito-ryu Shukokai Union U.K. is the U.K. branch of a worldwide Karate organisation known as

The Shito-ryu Shukokai Union (S.S.U.)

The World governing body for:

Yamada-ha Shito-ryu Shukokai Karate-do

Formerly ‘THE SHUKOKAI’ founded by the late Chojiro Tani.

The SSU is a non-profit making organisation that strives to uphold the integrity,
teachings and philosophy of authentic Shukokai Karate-do.

Although the SSU is rich in tradition it continually moves forward under the leadership of Haruyoshi Yamada
(successor to Chojiro Tani 1921-1998) to bring countries together to follow the same principles.

The SSU welcomes Shukokai and Shito-ryu groups to join us.
