Meibukan Wins Gold

Ryuhe Yagi, grandson of Yagi Meitetsu Sensei, competed at the All Okinawa Karate Association Kata tournament this past August and won his division. Young Ryuhe competed in the 7 & 8 year old division to follow the footsteps of his grandfather and father, Yagi Ippei-san.

Other Meibukan winners were Yagi Akihiro who won the Adult division, Shuji Kawakami who won the 13 & 14 year old division, and Oshiro who won the 10 year old division.

Congratulations to all who competed. While the success of winning medals may last for just a short time, the courage and development that one earns from challenges of a tournament lasts forever. Regardless of placement competing makes us all winners.
