A full day of training in Matsubayashi with 7th Dan Don Caponigro and other guest teachers.  No charge...just bring your desire to work hard!


Jupiter Traditional Martial Arts in Jupiter, Florida has been offering high-quality training since 2008.  We are led by 6th Dan, Renshi Robert Neier and have over a dozen black belt level practitioners working out with us.

We focus on Matsubayashi Shorin-Ryu, but also study elements of Goju-Ryu, Shaolin Kung Fu, Aikido, Japanese Ju Jutsu, Shotokan and many other martial arts.

We do our best to "leave the ego at the door" and therefore can learn from each other at maximum capacity. 


There are 19 katas, or forms, which we study in Matsubayashi Shorin-Ryu. They include:

  • Fukyugata Ichi, Ni, San
  • Naihanchi Shodan, Nidan, Sandan
  • Pinan Shodan, Nidan, Sandan, Yondan and Godan
  • Rohai, Passai, Anaku, Chinto, Gojushiho , Wanshu, Kusanku and  Wankan

With regular training and practice, one can expect to earn the invitation to test for black belt in 3-4 years. As always, it is always up to the student and the amount they practice.


We are located at the Jupiter Community Center (behind the Jupiter Police Department), and practice in their dance room.  The address is:


200 Military Trail
Jupiter, FL 33458


Hours of Operation are Saturday mornings from 9 until 11 am and Monday evenings from 7 to 8:30 pm.

  • This is, more than a group, a family of high quality people who happen to be high level martial artists on several traditional Japanese Martial Arts.
