I am sure it is completely clear that one of the main targets of this blog, is to keep 'authentic' Asai style karate alive, so I truly hope to continue offering written, photographic, and video contributions, which assist in this task.
Bigger than any individual in karate, including my late teacher, is the fact that each person finds their 'own way' in the martial arts. This was the example, that Asai Sensei left for us, and we should most certainly follow, to the best of our abilities.
