Martial Arts knowledge incorporates Goju Ryu Karate, Judo, Brazilian Jujitsu, Japanese Jujitsu, Boxing and Kickboxing.

His philosophy of teaching the martial arts is focused into three areas: the physical, psychological and spiritual or the Body, Mind, Spirit triunion.

In 2015 Shihan Vincent was graded to 6th Dan by Hanshi Tino Ceberano, he currently remains one of the few individuals to be graded to such a high and prestigious rank under the Tino Hanshi and under the International Goju Kai system.

In 2014 Vincent Shihan, seeking more knowledge for his passion Goju Ryu Karate, ventured to Okinawa to train under Goju-ryu head master, Taira Sensei. Impressed by Shihan Vincent’s eagerness and passion to continue developing and learning the ways of Goju-ryu, Taira Sensei awarded Vincent Shihan the recognition of Shibu Cho, allowing him to be an official Branch Chief under Taira Sensei’s Goju-ryu system, of the Goju Ryu Kenkyukai. In 2016 Taira Sensei graded Vincent Shihan to 5th Dan in the Goju-Ryu Karate Do Kenkyukai Okinawa.

The Okinawa Goju Ryu Kenkyukai is a karate organisation set up to promote research into the practical application of Okinawa Goju Ryu Karate kata and technique. It was instituted by Taira Masaji Sensei, to provide a collaborative learning group of like-minded practitioners to collectively advance our karate.
