About Us

DENVER SHORIN-RYU: is a traditional Okinawan Martial Arts School that is committed to preserving the classical training traditions of the martial arts. We make
the  training applicable to today's modern world.  
    Karate is a living art; it grows, develops and changes with the times and demands of its environment. We place a heavy emphasis on the study of Kata, just as they did in the past.

     This is the easiest way to pass on the timeless applications, concepts and ideas to future generations. 

Shihan David R.White has been involved in the martial arts for over 38 years! He started in Tae Kwon Do at the age of 13 and earned a black belt in that art in his mid-teens. After experiencing the tournament circuit, David White moved on to other arts to broaden his knowledge.  
     David White studied the Kenpo arts for many years. He then went in search of the Chinese arts. He studied a number of different Kung Fu styles including Shoalin, San-Soo, Wing Tsun, Tai Chi and Chi Kung. He gained advanced rank in several of those systems. 
     David White eventually stumbled onto Karate at the age of 30.  This was the art he had been searching for! 

     After many years of hard training and endless study, David White has obtained the rank of 6th Dan (Rukudan) and has earned the title of Shihan.
