Sensei George Andrews, 8th Dan

Chief Instructor of TOGKF England

Sensei George Andrew´s first exposure to the fighting traditions was in 1960 when as a schoolboy he started with boxing. In 1967 he took his first Karate class. Later on in 1973 he started with Okinawan Goju Ryu. He ceased training in his previous style Mushindo and devoted all his energies to training in Okinawan Goju Ryu Karate-do. Three years later in 1977 he met and trained under Sensei Higaonna Morio.

Sensei George Andrews first visited Japan in 1985. He trained twice daily with Sensei Higaonna and Sensei Kato for the seven weeks he was there. Sensei George Andrews has taught in many different countries around the world and continues to do so including the America, Europe and Asia. 

In 2002 Sensei Andrews formed the Okinawan Traditional Goju Ryu Karate-do Association (OTGKA) to preserve and continue the traditions and teachings of Sensei Higaonna Morio and the TOGKF in England.

During the 6th IOGKF World Budosai in Okinawa, July 2012, Sensei Andrews was successfully examined for his 8th Dan personally by Higaonna Sensei.
