Shobayashi-Ryu Karate Do Classes

Tranquil Cloud Temple, located in New Lenox, IL, teaches classical Shobayashi Shorin Ryu Karate Do with a direct lineage to our founder Grand Master Eizo Shimabukuro, we are the Endo Kan Honbu Dojo under the direction of William R Hayes, Hanshi. Martial training is required for medical qigong students and is a branch of Chinese medicine.


We teach an Okinawan tradition known as Shobayashi Ryu. Shobayashi Ryu Karatedo is a self-defense practice which develops concentration, speed, power, strength, accuracy, balance and coordination. However in its purest form, the practice of Shobayashi Ryu teaches us humility, respect and tolerance and it is through this austere training that the practitioner is able to avoid life’s obstacles and overcome insurmountable odds in order to live happily and without conflict.
