Sid Campbell's World Okinawan Shorin-Ryu Karate & Kobudo Association
In Honor and Memory of Sid Campbell
Grandmasters Sid Campbell and Dan Tosh co-founded WOSKKA in May of 1996, with Sid Campbell serving as the association President and Dan Tosh as the Vice-President. Since the passing of Sid Campbell in August of 2008, Hanshi Dan Tosh-10th Dan owner and operator of the Brentwood, California Shorin-Ryu Dojo has become the association President. Hanshi Sid Rayford-9th Dan owner and operator of the Merced, California Shorin-Ryu Dojo is now the association Vice-President. The WOSKKA Hombu Dojo (headquarters) is now the Tosh Shorin-Ryu Academy in Brentwood, California.
Sid Campbell's Vision
Hanshi Sid Campbell wanted to create an organization that would be free of any political or monetary influence. As a pioneer of Shorin-Ryu to the West, Sid Campbell had witnessed changes in organizations that seemed to shift the focus away from the preservation of the art of Shorin-Ryu Karate. The mission statement of WOSKKA was therefore a short and simple one... Preserving the Past, Unifying the Present, and Strengthening the Future
