Congratulations to Master Yagi Meitetsu on becoming president of Okinawa’s oldest karate association once again. The Zen Okinawa Karate-do Renmei was created in 1956 in part by the efforts of Yagi Meitoku (Dai Sensei) and Shoshin Nagamine Sensei (other names omitted until confirmed). It was the first multi-style association in Okinawa. The association was later renamed as The all Okinawa Karate Do Association. Dai Sensei later became its president in 1973.
Master Yagi Meitetsu is grateful for the confidence held by the members of the association and promises to do his best for the group during the next term. As the only member of the second generation to be the president, he does not take his responsibility lightly.
