Master Lucisano has trained in numerous styles since 1965 including, Kempo, Shodakan Karate, Tae-Kwon-Do, Kung Fu. From these arts he developed Goshu Kan Karate.
Goshu Kan follows the teachings of Grand Master Puxty and is suited to both young and old, women and men, abled and disabled. It is an art in which the coordinated development of the body, mind and spirit results in an improved defensive capacity and the attainment of the characteristics of love, wisdom, courage. The art is a culmulative process which is dependent upon determination, commitment, discipline, patience, endurance, unbending will and unswerving belief.
Goshu Kan is a holistic martial art style whereby students learn and understand self defence (locks, releases and take downs), general techniques (punching, striking and kicking), fighting (freestyle and tournament point sparring), breaking techniques (boards and tiles), and weapons (senior students only).
