The Direction of Double Dragon Goju-Ryu
under the leadership of Hanshi DeBuc
Combining Goju-Ryu’s teachings, along with the teachings of all the other instructors who have influenced my style of Karate, has given my students a unique advantage. This variation of Goju-Ryu gives my students not only a solid foundation in Karate-do, but also the versatility gained by knowing several styles.
My students understand the tremendous value in knowing how styles differ in their techniques, but are yet the same; and how various techniques from different styles increase in power when they are combined. The students of the Double Dragon Karate Institute of Goju-Ryu use traditional Goju-Ryu with the advances designed into Sansei Goju-Ryu as a foundation for Double Dragon Goju-Ryu. I have blended my knowledge of martial arts delicately into my variation of Goju-Ryu, called Double Dragon Goju-Ryu Karate-do, Double Dragon Goju-Ryu or Double Dragon Goju-USA, not to be mistaken with USA-Goju under Supreme Grandmaster Peter Urban, my Sansei Goju-Ryu teacher’s teacher. This is also the case with other instructors in the family of Goju-Ryu, making Masters extremely versatile and following the pattern of Masters of old which allows a style not to stagnate.
