We of the Ichikawa-Ha Goju-ryu International Karate-do Sosui-kai wish to follow all of the teachings of Kensei ‘s way of training.  In 1983, Ichikawa Kensei asked Taiani Sensei to travel to the Choso-ji Zen Temple and SIT.  This was the start of looking into a whole new world of training in Budo.  For many years, Taiani Sensei has been doing research in the two main schools of Zen – Soto and Rinzai.

      A Lesson from Ichikawa Sosui Kensei:

               You are made up of a body, mind and spirit.
  You work for many years training your body but now it’s time to work on your spirit.  
• Taiani, you must remember that you, and everyone else, are a spirit living within a body using a mind.
• You know how to use your body in Budo.
 Now start to use your spirit.
