GKR Karate publishes its own club magazine. It used to be called G-K-R Karate Magazine, but now is called Shimbun, which simply means "magazine" in Japanese. It contains information about all matters pertaining to GKR, as well articles, health information, family tales, inspirational stories and biographies on key GKR people.

Unfortunately, it can be rather tricky getting hold of copies, but Shihan tells us that there are plans to organise a subscription service through the web site so that you can get each issue delivered straight to your door.

Shimbun welcomes article submissions, ideas, inspirational stories and suggestions from club members, and it also has a reader's letters page, so if you have something to share, or you simply want to have your say, contact the editor at:
