Seiki Toma was one Odo Sensei's teachers.  He was also a senior student of Chotoku Kyan. This photo was taken in the dojo portion of Dai-Sensei Toma's residence.  I will say this about the man, "he was as rich in resolve, temperament, and dignity as he was in martial arts".  Toma's teachings and those of Odo Sensei will live on in our continued commitment and adherance to their knowledge and practices.

Direct Lineage of Okinawan Karate from teacher to senior student...


The origins of the Karate practiced in the WKKJO go back to the time of the Bodhidarma.  However, our karate is said to have originated with Takahara Peichin (1683-1760) who taught Kusanku (1720 - 1790?), who in turn taught Karate Sakugawa - 1733 - 1815 (to the right) 

















Sokon Matsumura was the senior student of Sakugawa Sensei.

See Bushi Matsumura's (1800 - 1892?) story at:  https://toshujutsu.wordpress.com/2014/06/30/sokon-matsumura-what-did-he-actually-teach/









Anko Itosu (1831- 1915)

Notable students of Itosu included Choyu Motobu (1857–1927), Choki Motobu (1870–1944), Kentsu Yabu (1866–1937), Chomo Hanashiro (1869–1945), Moden Yabiku (1880–1941), Kanken Toyama (1888–1966), Chotoku Kyan (1870–1945), Shinpan Shiroma (Gusukuma) (1890–1954), Anbun Tokuda (1886–1945), Kenwa Mabuni (1887–1952), and Chōshin Chibana (1885–1969). 


It is with Itosu Sensei that we see a great proliferation of Okinawa's Karate...

WKKJO - Jiu Jitsu and MMA

Sherbourne began training in Jiujitsu with his Grandfather in Scotland at the age of 8 and continued with this sporadically until his granfather's passing in the late 1980's.  He wrestled in high school for three years and then moved on to kickboxing and boxing.  He practiced TKD and sharpened his kicking skills from the age of 17 - 19.  He had a tendency to use his hands too often during sparring sessions in TKD and was accused several times of using Karate which he had never practiced.  At the age of 19 he decided to investigate Karate, and after some training, again he was accused of using wrestling and Jiu Jitsu during sparring sessions.  In 1992 when he moved to London from North Carolina, he started teaching MMA, inviting people from all different types of martial arts to convene every Sunday in a school gym to have MMA matches with some basic rules to prevent injury.  Sherbourne understood that wrestling and Jiu Jitsu were clearly imperative to surviving a physical confrontation.  He trained under Royce Gracie from 2004 -2018 and has spent more than 25 years analyzing and applying the principles and techniques of Jiu Jitsu for real world self defense.  

Sherbourne trains all of pracitioners at SMAA to become well versed in striking, grappling and ground work... so that students are able to defend themselves when addressing any type of unarmed attack.  Many students have competed in MMA matches through Pankration and Cage Fighting.
