Gozan Ryu Martial Arts
Gozan means five mountains. The system was founded by Kawika Sensei after a life long journey of military and academic pursuits. The Art of Gozan was a culmination of years of of martial experience from fighting in the jungle of Vietnam, seven years with the elite Navy SEALs, certified case-officer for the C.I.A. Counter terrorism task center and multiple degrees from ivy league universities. This along with his vast experience as a martial artist make him uniquely qualified to design the Gozan System.
