About This Book

This handbook should be used as a reference tool and a guide; it should not be used to learn something new!

The Spokane Shorin-Ryu Karate Dojo is a non-profit organization focusing on the quality of a student rather than the quantity of students in the dojo.  The head instructor is Sensei Ken Schug (5th degree black belt).  He has three volunteer assistants: Dai Sempai (most senior student) Darrin Montgomery, Sempai Ray McCabe, and Sempai George McCabe.  The dojo has a web site at .  We are also affiliated with the Northwest Shorin-Ryu Karate Association under the guidance of Kyoshi Jerry Gould.  For more information on the association contact him at the address below.  This handbook was put together by Darrin Montgomery with the help of Sensei Ken Schug and Kyoshi Jerry Gould.  When putting this handbook together  we borrowed from other sources as well as making up some original material .  The purpose of this handbook is to help new students as well as old students in their karate endeavors.  It should be used as a reference tool or a guide to help remember.  This handbook should not be used to learn something from scratch,  it was put together so that it would be extremely difficult to do so.
