Goshukan Karate Academy is part of the Seiwakai Goju Ryu Karate-Do organisation, one of the member organisations of the Japan Karate Federation (JKF) Goju Kai.
The name ‘Goshukan’ was name given to Stacey Karetsian Shihan in 2007 by the Founder of Seiwakai Goju Ryu, Tsuji Tasaki Hanshi. Tasaki was known as Grandmaster Gogen Yamaguchi Sensei’s top student. He was a revered and extraordinary fighter and student of karate at that time. Yamaguchi would call him Goshu (a nick name).
Stacey has an extensive background in karate dating back to when he first started training in Shotokan (JKA) in 1984. He has been studying Goju Ryu since 2001, adopting technique and kata to inspire and help to grow the club he was a part of (GKR) for over 25 years. His passion for knowledge and constant improvement has lead him to take the next level in his personal development in the art, and to share this with others who share the same passion.
