Guide plate text

The founder of Shotokan Karatedo, Gichin Funakoshi, was born in Shuri, Naha City, Okinawa Prefecture on October 10, 1868. His pen name was Shoto. He learned karate from Masters Anko Asato and Anko Itosu and for over 30 years, he interacted widely with persons involved in karate while working as a school teacher. Master Funakoshi opened the Okinawa Shobukai, visited the Okinawa Karate Research Society, supervised a karate demonstration in Shuri Castle in front of the Showa Emperor (Hirohito), and diligently worked in the popularization and standardization of karate.
In 1922, Master Funakoshi introduced karate for the first time in Mainland Japan at the Physical Education Exhibition. From then on and upon request, he became an instructor and started teaching in Mainland Japan while writing books. He is credited for charging the Chinese character for the "kara" in karate from the 唐 "To" (Chinese) character to the present 空 "Kara" (empty) character, later adding 道 "Do" (way) Kara (empty) comes from the 禅 Zen sentence "form is emptiness and emptiness is form" while Do stands for study.
Mater Funakoshi taught tirelessly until his death in April 26th, 1957, at the age of 88. Later, people named him the "Father of Modern Karatedo". This is not only because he spread karatedo to the world, but also because of Mater Funakoshi's disposition towards the way.
On the 50th anniversary of the Master's passing away, concerned persons gather from all over the world and remember the Master's virtues and merits, and thus we erect here the "Funakoshi Gichin Monument".

空手に先手なし
空手道松涛館流祖船越義珍先生之諭

空手道松涛館流祖、船越義珍先生は明治元年十月十日沖縄県那覇市首里に生まれ、雅号を松涛と称した。唐手を安里安恒・糸洲安恒両師に学び、三十有余年教壇に立ちながら沖縄唐手有志と広く交わり、沖縄尚武会を開き、沖縄唐手研究会に参じ、首里城で昭和天皇御前演武を指揮するなど、唐手の普及と統一に力を尽くした。大正十一年体育展覧会で本土に初めて唐手を紹介、以来本土にあって請われて師範となり指導を行う傍ら教書を著し唐手を空手に、後に空手道と改める。空は般若心経に依り、道は修行を意とする。昭和三十二年四月二十六日、八十八歳にして終わるまで、誘掖(ゆうやく)して倦(う)まず。後に人びとは先生を「近代空手道の父」と称した。これは空手道を世界に布衍(ふえん)せしめたことのみをいうのではない。先生の道に対する人となりに依るのである。
先生の五十回忌にあたって国内外から有志が集まり、先生の遺徳を偲び功を彰かにして、ここに「船越義珍顕彰碑」を建立する。
