Karate-Do was born in Okinawa many years ago. The Okinawans who practised the art of Karate continued to learn and to study the art and passed it on from generation to generation to become what is known today as Karate-Do.
 Gohaku-Kai Karate-Do is a system of Karate-Do developed by Sensei Iken Tokashiki. It comprises the Karate styles of Goju-Ryu and Tomarite. Sensei Tokashiki learned two very famous teachers: Sensei Nakasone(Tomarite) and Sensei Fukuchi(Goju-Ryu). Gohaku-Kai Karate-Do was developed to carry and honor the teachings of these two teachers.
