Shukokai Karate, "The Way for All" is a dynamic form of Karate, which has evolved from careful analysis of the dynamics and principles of traditional karate. The lineage of Shukokai is such that it can be considered a direct descendant of it's parent style, Shito Ryu. Thus in order to fully appreciate the evolution of Shukokai Karate from the original Okinawan Te schools, it is a valid exercise to first explore the development of Shito-Ryu Karate.

The formation of the Shito Ryu school of Karate is accredited to Soke Kenwa Mabuni (1890-1952). Mabuni, like many of the old karate masters, was descended from the Okinawan warrior class, or bushi. Mabuni family members had served Okinawan lords for hundreds of years.
