In Memory of a Legend

Eight years ago today, the Karate world lost a great legend who stood steadfast for Okinawa Karate. Dai Sensei YAGI Meitoku, founder of Meibukan and a founding father of the All Okinawa Karate-do Association passed away. Recognized for his contribution to Okinawa’s heritage, Dai Sensei was honoured with the title of a “Living Cultural Asset” during his last years.

Let us not forget Karate’s Okinawan heritage and the dedication that has been exemplified by great men like Dai Sensei YAGI Meitoku.
