Osensei Shoshin Nagamine & Soke Takayoshi NagamineWelcome to the official website of the World Matsubayashi-Ryu (Shorin-Ryu) Karate-Do Association (TM). The art of Matsubayashi-Ryu was founded in 1947 by O'Sensei Shoshin Nagamine. The WMKA was established by him to preserve and perpetuate the art. It has branches throughout the world. As his father's successor, Soke Takayoshi Nagamine dedicated himself to preserving his father's teachings and the legacy of Matsubayashi-Ryu. After the recent loss of Soke Nagamine, the WMKA board  elected Yoshitaka Taira, Hanshi, to serve as the current WMKA President.
