Karatedo is a martial art that was born from the multicultural addition of the unique defense art of "hands" handed down from the time of the Ryukyu Kingdom in Okinawa.

We are deeply grateful to the legacy of our predecessors who have maintained the tradition of the first-generation system and the orthodox aspirations of Karatedo, and who have risked life and death to study Karatedo.

One of the predecessors, the late Grand Master Toyama Kanken (1888~1966), was a teacher of the late Ichikawa Isao Hanshi 10. Dan (1935~1996), who followed and passed on his teachings.

He was the last Uchi-deshi (private pupil) and successor of Grand Master Kanken Toyama of the Okinawa Sheitō Karatedō Shūdōkan and was the founder of Karatedo Doshinkan.

Our classes focus on the basic techniques and Kata left behind by Hanshi Isao and can be practiced alone or in a group.  Everyone from children to men and women of all ages can practice according to their stage of development. In Kobudo, we learn techniques through Kata utilizing classical Okinawan weaponry such as BO, SAI, TONFA, NUNCHAKU, and NICHO-GAMA. Aiming for harmony of mind, technique, and body, we train daily for better health, longer life, self-defense and the perfection of our character.

The late Hanshi 10. Dan Nobuo Ichikawa (1941~2019), who later took over the leadership of Doshinkan in 1996, was able to further improve the skills of the dojo students and further perfect their personalities through his immense efforts and teaching policies that fit today's times.

Martial arts and Karatedo are said to be "the business of service," which means that there are no conflicts of interest. It is said that if you are looking for an advantage in Karate, you are not ready yet. I believe that we should not forget to seek the origin of Budo, which is to be a person with a good heart who respects courtesy and faith.

Ichikawa Isao

Hanshi Isao Ichikawa was DAISHIHAN Kanken Toyama's last inner disciple and was named his successor on his deathbed. Hanshi Isao fundamentally systematized karatedo and spread it all over the world.

With his ingenious understanding of the “whole” he created a comprehensive teaching system that lives on as the independent school Doshinkan.

It is thanks to him that the “treasure” of the katas was preserved for posterity; many schools in the world are now learning more than ever from Doshinkan.

Ichikawa Nobuo

Hanshi Nobuo Ichikawa, was the Doshinkan leader from 1996 to March 6, 2019, who continued the Karatedo Doshinkan as a legacy.

"Kata" and "technique" did not freeze, but were further developed by him.

In Doshinkan, therefore, it is not the ashes of ancient knowledge that is collected, but rather the spark is carried out into the world.

Traditionally, knowledge is passed on from teacher to the student orally and in doing according to the following system: Maneru - Wakaru - Nareru,

Imitate - understand - make a habit

Fujimoto - Stock Masako

Shortly before his death on March 6, 2019,

10. Dan Nobuo Ichikawa appointed, Masako Fujimoto - Stock, who lives in Tyrol, as his worldwide successor.


Masako Fujimoto - Stock is the mother of four children and has been married to Shihan 8.Dan Oswald-Paul Stock "Sport Ossi" since 1999 in Kramsach.

What this appointment of the first woman as Hanshi in Karatedo Doshinkan means can only be guessed at today.

Hanshi Masako, as she will be called from now on, will travel the world like her predecessor to teach Karatedo, always on the trail of and in memory of her great teachers.

This task presents Hanshi Masako with great challenges, which she takes on with her pronounced sense of responsibility.

Hanshi Masako received countless congratulations from all over the world. This confirms her goal of consistently and personally passing Doshinkan Karatedo on to her students.


You can train with Hanshi not only in the Honbu Dojo in Kramsach / Tyrol but all over the world.
