Sensei Robert Young

Sensei Robert Young has been practicing martial arts for over 48 years, and has produced many present and past world champions. He has taught many state, national and international champions but his focus has always been to preserve the traditional teachings of Okinawan Goju Ryu Karate Do. His advice is sought by many yet he still considers himself a student. He believes that all practitioners of karate should always remember that no matter what the style, it should be considered a journey and not a destination.

For his personal growth he finds it incomparable to go to Okinawa, the birth place of all karate. It is there where all the most senior masters serve as an inspiration to all by their dedication to daily training, regardless of age. It is only through this never ending dedication to training that one will find the true essence of karate-do.
