Master Tatsuo Shimabuku

This portion of our Dojo's website is dedicated to Master Tatsuo Shimabuku (1908-1975).

It is through the memories and the teachings of Master Shimabuku's students that we feel a great connection to him.

Sensei Norm Losier's Isshin Ryu lineage is through Sensei A.J. Advincula, a first-generation student of Master Shimabuku.

We are grateful for Sensei Advincula's dedication to, and respect for, Master Shimabuku, and for his ability to pass these qualities to his students.

Remember Master Shimabuku, and the dedication he had in giving each of us what was dear to his heart ... Isshin Ryu.
