I am looking for a martial arts school in the greater Seattle area that practices the Okinawan Shorin-Ryu style of Karate. There are three subdivisions of this style (that I'm aware of): Kobayashi, Matsubayashi, and Shobayashi. Although I would prefer to find a Kobayashi dojo, this is of lesser importance than finding a genuine Shorin-Ryu school.
