Introduction of main instructor

Main instructor
Hiroshi Akanine sensei
(Kobudo 9th dan & Shorin-ryu Karate 9th dan)

He was born in 1954 in Tomigusuku City, Okinawa Prefecture, as the fourth son to Eisuke Akamine, the second President of Ryukyu Kobudo Hozon Shinko Kai.
At the age of 6, he was given instruction in Karate by his father. He began his serious practice of Karate in his junior high school days. While he studied Karate under Shijin (old name for Hiroshi) Gushiken Sensei of Shorinryu Kyudokan, he learned Kobudo from his father. In 1999, upon the passing of his father, he became the third president of Ryukyu Kobudo Hozon Shinko Kai, thus inheriting the organization.
In July 2011, with new determination, he established Ryukyu Kobudo Shimbukan based on the Shimbukan Dojo established by his father, Eisuke Akamine Sensei. At the same time, he assumed the position of President of Okinawa Shorinryu Mukenkai Association, which was established by Shijin (Hiroshi) Gushiken Sensei.  He has a number of dojos in and out of the Prefecture as well as in countries abroad. He continues to instruct on a regular basis.
At present, he holds Hanshi Kyu Dan (9th degree black belt) of the Ryukyu Traditional Martial Arts and Hanshi Kyu Dan (9th degree black belt) of Shorinryu Karate Do.
