Gosoku ryu is an aggressive and quick style that combine direct strong movements of Shotokan with quick and soft movements of Goju-ryu. The stress is made on the practical use of your basic movements while sparring. In defensive positions postures are usually shorter but they can be turned into longer postures for making strong movements. Quick undercuttings and throws are popular in Gosoku Ryu and attacks in kumite often end up on the floor. Gosoku Ryu, unlike other styles, involves the quick leg work that adds speed and strength due to rolling hips. Kubota Takayuki.
