In its literal meaning 'Gosoku-Ryu ', 'Go' means power, 'Soku' means with speed, 'Ryu' is style, literally translated as the style of karate with great power and speed. Its unique feature that it has perfect blend of 'power' of Shotokan karate with speed of Goju-Ryu makes it a very powerful style of martial art.
Gosoku-Ryu is characterized by its fast circular hand movements and fast footwork. Gosoku-Ryu defence is a flowing circular movement using both hands at the same time. Much of the footwork incorporates the switching of the position of the feet and hips, thus rotating body and harnessing the power of the entire body in the movement. Thus makes it a 'unique' style.
