I'd like to take this brief chance to thank all of my readers from around the world. I sincerely hope that my blog continues to assist you, where ever you may be. Over the last couple of years I've received so many wonderful emails from people of every ethnicity. All who mutually love the art of traditional Japanese Karatedo. Such letters always put a big smile on my face. Karate never ceases to amaze me, in regards the development of strong international bonds, regardless of cultural differences.
My kindest regards to you all from Nakatsu City, Oita, Japan.
