Go is Japanese for hard, ju means soft, and the phrase goju ryu refers to a type of karate, pioneered in 1930, that uses both types of movements. "Hard" generally refers to closed-hand attacks. "Soft" generally describes open-handed and circular motions used in defense or grappling, as well as the aggressive throwing of cotton balls. To say that Sensei Tibon is an expert in this form of Okinawan karate might be an understatement. He estimates that he's trained hundreds of athletes who went on to win national and international competitions, and his own trophy case isn't exactly lacking, either. Sensei Tibon has also lent his martial arts and instruction skills to an array of outreach organizations. On the mat at one of his studio's multiple locations, however, Sensei TIbon directs his focus completely to the lesson at hand, which can be anything from a weapons class or beginner classes for kids aged 4 to 12.
