Our Dojo name - Renshinkan
The name of Karate Dojo’s are often bestowed to the chief instructor by their teacher and will reflect aspects of the instructor's personality, name, philosophy, and approach to both their own training and teaching.
Soke Kuniaki Nobukawa 9th dan Hanshi (Japan Karate-Do Nobukawa-ha Shitoryu Kai World Chief Instructor) approved the use of the name of "RENSHINKAN", to myself and my Dojo.
The literal translation of RENSHIN is "TRAIN WITH SPIRIT". The final character KAN, denotes a place where people come together in order to practice, therefore RENSHINKAN can be explained as a place where people come together to train hard with feeling from the heart.
Our Dojo is proud of our Japanese karate heritage as practitioners of a traditional martial art, therefore our badge embraces those aspects.
