On June 24th,

Katelynn, Lora and Tyrone represented our dojo to honor Sensei Sonny Kim. I am grateful to have known such an amazing man.
After the training, Katelynn had the honor to take a picture with Sensei Nishime. It was very special for her because she tested for her first kyu rank with him more than 18 years ago.
I was in Canada and received this picture of the 2 of them. I was happy to see that he is healthy and I am very grateful for  the hard training that he gave me  in the early days.

2014 January- February Calendars
This news was given to us when we were in Okinawa back in October.
Yes, It was a true honor to be able to be able to visit this historical site. Bunshiro has to go away to teach Elementary School and is not able to remain at the honbu during this time period. The Dojo is owned by the Nagamine family but the land that the dojo sits on is owned by someone else. If there is no Nagamine Family member that is teaching and training in the building, it nullifies the agreement. The landowner wants to build condos since the dojo sits one block off of the most popular street in Okinawa. We all should feel fortunate to have been able to train and teach in a building that has such close ties to the origins of karate. It is hard to believe that the government would not register this as a true historical landmark since it is one of the oldest dojos in Okinawa.

Reminder: We have class tonight Tuesday Night 11/26/13.
No class on Wednesday 11/27/13 or Saturday 11/30/13

November 9th @ 11:30am – Okinawa Trip Recap.

“The Funeral Karate-Do Seminar and Exchange Demonstration 2014

for Soke Takayoshi Nagamine in Okinawa”

Dear  WMKA members,

It has been a year and a half since the passing away of Soke Takayoshi Nagamine last year. No one or anything can fill his vacancy and we are still in mourning for his loss. But we have to move forward to admire his honor and legacy.

Though the Okinawa headquarters had been halted after passing away of Soke, we were able to restart with your support and cooperation.  Unfortunately, we had postponed Soke’s original schedule of “ World Matsubayashi-Ryu karate-Do Seminar 2013 in Okinawa . However, we have decided to open “The Funeral Karate-Do Seminar and Exchange Demonstration 2014 for Soke Takayoshi Nagamine in Okinawa”.

The venues will be at the “Rensei Dojo” inside the Okinawa Prefectural Hall of Martial Arts where we held the Karate-Do Seminar during
“ The Ceremony of the 75th Foundation Anniversary of World Matsubayashi-Ryu Karate-Do & the 13th Memorial Karate-Do Demonstration for Grand Master Shoshin Nagamine” in November 2010.

Please refer to the tentative schedule below and contents of the events in this announcement.

We will post the final schedule and the contents of the events later, because we can only reserve the venues after December 1, 2013. However, it is decided to open the events during first week in November 2014 .

The Tentative schedule of the events are :

1.    Title of the Event: “The Funeral Karate-Do Seminar and Exchange Demonstration 2014 for Soke Takayoshi Nagamine in Okinawa”.

2.    Date and Contents of the Events : From October 31st to November 2nd ( 3-Day Seminar)

Date (Week) Time Contents
October 31  (Fri) 10:00  to 16:00 Karate-Do Seminar
17:00  to 19:00 Dojo Owners Meeting
November 1 (Sat) 10:00  to 16:00 Karate-Do Seminar
November 2 (Sun) 09:00  to 12:00 Dan Promotion Test
14:00  to 17: 00 Exchange Demonstration
18:00  to 21:00 Exchange Party

We sincerely expect that all WMKA members will be aware of the events and consider your schedule next year for coming to Okinawa in November 2014.

We give our best regards from Okinawa to everyone around the world wherever you live.

Sincerely Yours,

President Yoshitaka Taira
