Tadashi Yamashita Career

Yamashita has dedicated over 60 years of his life to the practice of Okinawan Karatedo and Kobudo. He is a tenth dan in both karatedo and kobudo. Yamashita is the President and Director of US Shorin-Ryu Karate Association, the USA President of the Zen Okinawan Kobudo Association and Chief Instructor of Shorin Ryu in the United States.

Yamashita has traveled to South America, Greece and Bulgaria. Yamashita comes to Hampton Roads, VA annually. Bateman and his students work out with him on these occasions. Yamashita keeps a close connection with his birthplace of Japan and Okinawa. He has studied under Chibana Chosin of Shorin Ryu, Shuguro Nakazato of Shorin Ryu Shorin Kan and Shinpo Matayoshi, founder of the Zen Okinawan Kobudo Renmei.

Yamashita combines many progressive fighting tactics with traditional aspects of karatedo. Yamashita's system (known as Suikendo) translates to fist flowing like water. This system of fighting allows the karateka to simultaneously block and strike his opponent.

In 2010, Yamashita performed at the United States Martial Arts Festival, hosted by Koyamada International Foundation at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center in Redondo Beach, California.

Yamashita has made many movies over the past 20 years. His first was The Karate in 1973. For several years, he was billed in American films as Bronson Lee.
