Ippei Yagi Sensei has been selected to be part of the Okinawa Dento Karate-do Shinkokai instructors delegation to Hawaii. The ODKS has been working closely with the Okinawan government for the preservation of Okinawa karate. Last year they led the first collective style seminar and certification for Okinawa karate.
Although, this Hawaiian tour is the first by the ODKS, the Okinawan government has sponsored many others in its history. Chojun Miyagi has made his visit to Hawaii for Karate as has Dai Sensei Yagi Meitoku and Yagi Meitetsu Sensei. This latest announcement is received with great honor by Ippei Sensei.
In February, the ODKS will also be host an advanced 3 week course for 3rd dans and up. For those who can’t make it, Meibukan Houkonkai will be hosting Okinawa Goju-Ryu seminars with Meibukan Hombu Dojo president Yagi Meitetsu Sensei in February. Please stay tuned for details.
