OUR BEGINNINGS

The Shinjinbukan School was founded by Onaga Yoshimitsu Sensei in Okinawa, Japan to preserve the ancient Ryūkyū martial arts, culture and living traditions.  Since 1996, Mr. Jimmy Mora, a direct student of Onaga Yoshimitsu Sensei, started teaching the Shinjinbukan Karate in the New York City Metropolitan Area through several volunteer programs.

In 2007, the Shinjinbukan New York Shibu Dōjō (Branch School) was incorporated under the legal name Shinjinbukan Foundation, as a 501(c)(3) Not-for-Profit Corporation registered in the State of New York with the approval of the New York State Department of Education. 

It was established by Mr. Jimmy Mora as a 501(c)(3) Not-for-Profit Corporation, rather than a commercial martial arts school, in order to help preserve authentic Ryūkyū martial arts. 

The Shinjinbukan Foundation provides a service to the community by offering a unique cultural experience: affordable martial arts classes for children and adults.  It also provides scholarships based on the financial needs of each student.  Every year, the Shinjinbukan Foundation sponsors several martial arts Gasshuku (training camps) in the New York area and in other countries.
