The academy took its name from the late Yoshitaka Funakoshi the son of the late Gichin Funakoshi the founder of the Shotokan.
Yoshitaka had a great influence on the Shotokan system developing many of the kicking & hand techniques we use to day.
The academy follows the teachings of the late Kase Sensei who was greatly influenced by Yoshitaka when he trained at the Shotokan & incorporated many of his ideas into his own development & founded the Kase-Ha Shotokan-Ryu Karate-Do Instructor Academy.
