Shukokai (???, shukõkai?) is a group of closely related styles of Karate, based on Tani-ha Shito-ryu, a branch of Shito-ryu developed by Chojiro Tani in the late 1940’s. The first dojo where Tani taught his style was opened in Kobe, Japan in 1946 and named Shuko Kai, meaning the “Way for All” Club[1][2]. Shukokai was designed around the study of body mechanics, and is famed for its ‘double hip twist’ to maximise the force of its strikes. Due to this, Shukokai is known as one of the hardest-hitting Karate styles[citation needed].

Shukokai split into several independent branches throughout the world
