Our organization dates back to Master Ansei Ueshiro bringing Matsubayashi Shorin-Ryu Karate from Okinawa to the USA in 1962, following the invitation of US soldiers returning home from their overseas service on the Island of Okinawa, where they were trained by Master Ueshiro at Master Shoshin Nagamine's dojo. Master Ueshiro was sent as Okinawa's official karate representative to the US. He settled in New York City, where he eventually passed the responsibility of teaching karate to his right-hand man, Hanshi Robert Scaglione. Hanshi Scaglione continues to actively train and lead us on the Karate-Do path.

I come to you only with Karate. My hands are empty, but I fear no man. Should I be forced to defend myself, my honor, or my principles -- should it be a matter of right or wrong, life or death -- then here are my weapons: my empty hands.
