Yasuharu Makishi Hanshi 10th Dan
Nov. 24, 1939 May 31, 2013

I am truly saddened to hear of the death of Hanshi Yasuharu Makishi and would like to express my sincere condolences to his family and to all those who were fortunate to have known him. Hanshi Makishi was a loyal and devout student of Shoshin Nagamine, and he was an amazing karate-ka, absolutely possessing some of the best skills and technical knowledge of only a few others that I have met. I have very fond memories of training with Hanshi Makishi in Okinawa and I will always remember how kind and respectful he was to me whenever we met. Matsubayashi-Ryu and all the Martial Arts community has lost a very special person and will never be able to fill the void that has been left behind.

With deepest respect and heartfelt sincerity,
Hanshi Frank Grant
Chairman, World Shorin-Ryu Karate-do Federation
Welcome to the official site of the World Shorin-ryu Karate-Do Federation!

Hanshi Frank Grant studied directly under Grand Master Shoshin Nagamine and became a great influence of Okinawan Karate-do world-wide. Hanshi Grant established the WSKF in 1970 with the support of O'Sensei Shoshin Nagamine and currently holds the position of Chairman of the Board. He has spent many years in the Dayton, Ohio area and has produced hundreds of Black Belts who in turn produced many dojos. The WSKF is currently headquartered in Piqua, Ohio where Hanshi Grant has his dojo.
