Kubo Karate, Traditional Karate With a Traditional Master.More
In 1953, the International Karate Association was formed in Tokyo, Japan. Since its inception, the primary goal of the IKA has been to promote traditional Japanese Karate - specifically the Gosoku Ryu, Hard/Fast style, originated by Takayuki Kubota. In 1964, Grand Master Kubota relocated the Association's headquarters to the United States and was able to attract talented young students that later formed the core of the American branch of the IKA.
