About this pro

The original style from Hohan Soken, Okinawan Shorynryu Matsumura Seito Karate Do.   Started my training in 1970 Oct at Yozadake Airstation in Okinawa.  This was Soken's only on base dojo.
 Truly fortunate, learning under this 83 year old.  Today I am in contact with his son Kanno Soken.  He states I'm the only one following Soken's kata.  It saddens him, as well myself.

You'll also learn some Uchinaguchi Okinawan Language.  This has been a life long hobby, enjoying every step of the way.  I'm 72, but my eyes aren't blue.  I'm looking forward to teaching YOU

Seeing individuals get stronger, helping them to Live longer.  Self Defense is second to benefit.  Knowing they'll develop if attending 3 classes a week.  Watching their face when Chi concepts taught.
