about the wind school
Founded in 1974, the Wind School is located in North Central New Jersey, with satellites in Montana and New York State.
Three complimentary arts weave into an integrated system concentrating on practical, therapeutic, and spiritual gains:
Okinawan Isshinryu: The karate system formalized in 1954 by Tatsuo Shimabuku (1908-1975).
Isshin Kempo: Founded in 1970 by William Scott Russell (Karate: The Energy Connection). Russell expanded Isshinryu’s technical curriculum, separating it from its Okinawan predecessor.
Wu Hsin Tao: The ‘Five Element Way’ is a Chinese esoteric system created during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).
