the 1st R.I.Shotokan Karate-do dojo was found by
Shihan Christopher J. Dacey 5th Dan in Shotokan & Kempo under Prof. Larry S.L. Martin in 1997 on Elmwood
Ave. in Cranston, Rhode Island. teaching only traditional Shotokan Karate-do, in 2000 we moved to Park Ave. in Cranston
where we stayed for 3 yrs. in 2003 we found our new HQ. on Gansett Ave. in Cranston. Shihan Dacey ask Prof. Martin if he would
take over and continue teaching classes Prof. Martin agreed and R.I.Shotokan Karate-do became the main HQ. for Shojukempo
International. teaching traditional Shotokan Karate-do, Okinawan / Hawaiian Kempo, Aikijujitsu, Pai-Lum Kung-fu and Kobudo
ryu. our dojo mybe small. but, we fill it up mostly every nite. Shihan Dacey is the Technical Director for shotokan which
he is very well knowledgeable in. Shihan Dacey started training at the age of 21. weeks after he graduated from URI as a Manager
for Old Stone Bank in Riverside, Rhode Island. Prof. Martin was teaching at Bradley Hospital gym 4 nites aweek. Shihan
Dacey is 40 yr. old now and likes to teach Shotokan then Kempo. but, he can teach Kempo when he wants to. we are the 1st dojo
that teaches traditional shotokan karate-do and Okinawan / Hawaiian Kempo together. basic's are still the same. but, the kata
are done just alittle bit different.
we practice the Kempo kata called fukyugata ichi,
ni. pinan's, and so an so fourth! these are the Original kata from Okinawan Kempo. don't forget that Master Funakoshi wrote
a book called ryukyu kempo. Okinawan Kempo to Japanese Shotokan Karate-do Master Funakoshi knew what he was doing!
