TAIGISHIN-KAN

PROFILE


The Taigishin-kan 体技心館™® is an indipendent school of thought or Ryu-Ha 流派 to spread the Budo and its culture. The Taigishin-kan was born as a public dojo in 2005 in Calabria (Italy), thanks to the desire of Prof. Angelo Bonanno to teach karate and jujutsu. After the transfer of Prof. Bonanno to northern Italy for job reasons on 2010, the public dojo was closed to live again as a private dojo at the home of the master himself, where he hosts the few internal students of the Ryu-ha, while the public classes are held at the Gymnasium Club in Riccione (Italy).

The Taigishin-kan is mainly devoted to the preservation of family karate system Kojoryu • Shinzanryu 湖城流 • 振山流™® but it contributes to the study of Okinawan karate and Nihon bujutsu & cuture in general. So Taigishin-kan has two departments to operate:
