This is Missing Link Martial Arts: 

  • We merge realism and tradition. A concept of learning and teaching that addresses the Missing Links between traditional martial arts and modern application.      

  • Japanese Karate as the foundation, connecting it to its Chinese roots, making it more versatile and comprehensive. We offer the fusion of internal and external martial arts.

  • Missing Link is an international community of curious, open minded Karateka who practice ShoShin – the beginner’s mind.

  • The community doesn’t waste much time on politics, but focuses on learning and teaching instead.

  • The Missing Link Online Dojo offers regular classes and a growing database of knowledge.

  • The community offers offline events, seminars, gradings and support.

The complete concept as a

book, including Curriculum

and three different forms

of syllabus. 

The book is available

for free as download

in our Online Dojo database.
