 New York City Goju Ryu Karate-Do/Jutsu is NOT a sport based system school. Traditional Okinawan Goju Ryu is an Authentic Martial Art that was developed for self protection. It requires discipline, patience, diligence, and hard work to attain its knowledge! This teaches responsibility, accountability and helps mold a good character.  If you are looking for a school that is tournament based, rushes you into fighting techniques, and rank, this is not the school for you.
