  Kojosho Kempo Karate teaches a time-honored martial art that offers its students a life time of study, reflection and growth.
the History of Kojosho traces its roots back to 3rd century China and the physician, Hua T'o, who developed a series of exercises based on five animal movements. the Philosophy of Kojosho embraces the inseparable bond between martial application and artistic expression.
