Toshihiro Oshiro (大城 利弘 Oshiro Toshihiro, born May 1, 1949) is a martial arts master and instructor from Haneji, Okinawa (Ryukyu), Japan.
He began his study of Karate at age 6, eventually expanding his study to include Judo and Kendo. As a teen he began studying Yamanni Ryu (or Yamanni-Chinen ryu) with Chogi Kishaba, the direct student of Masami Chinen who was the only instructor of the style remaining in Okinawa. Shihan Oshiro is currently 9th Dan in both Shorin-ryu and 8th Dan in Yamanni ryu.
After retiring as a detective in the Okinawan Police Department, in 1978, he moved to the USA.
