Osu! Welcome to West Side Jin Sei Ryu!

Jin Sei Ryu Karate-Do is a traditional Japanese style of karate which means “Profound Reflections for Growth.” It was founded by Kancho Ino Maquirang and is headquartered in Sydney, Australia, with branches around the globe. Our vision is for students around the world to use karate-do as a platform for personal growth and development.

Jin Sei Ryu North America is headquartered in New York; we refer to ourselves as “West Side Jin Sei Ryu” because our dojo (karate school) is located on the Upper West Side Manhattan.  Our dojo’s instructor, Sei Shihan (Master) Mel Ramsey, is also Jin Sei Ryu’s North American branch chief.  Sei Shihan Mel is a 6th degree black belt with over 45 years of experience in marital arts.
