The Shimbukan Dojo was first opened in 1971 by Eisuke Akamine Sensei who was a student of Ryukyu Kobudo Senseis Shinken Taira and Seiichiro Higa. In 1999 Eisuke Akamine Sensei passed away and the Shimbukan Dojo was taken over by his son Hiroshi Akamine Sensei who is Chairman of the Shimbukan.

Every year, students from all over the world travel to Okinawa to train at the famous Shimbukan.
