This site is based on my daily practice of traditional Shotokan Karate-Do. I'm a Japan and international instructor based in Oita City. My dojo constantly has high-level trainees from all over Japan and, occassionally karateka from abroad, seeking true budo. More than anything else, unlike the majority of other karate-do websites, this page is primarily dedicated to training itself; that is, Karate-Do as a vehicle for holistic development.

Final practice for 2009
Today was my final karate keiko for 2009. The single session comprised of lot’s of ido-kihon up and down the dojo, the practice of several kata (both Shotokan-ryu and Asai-ryu), and 15 minute run in the light snow. From now it is time to rest... And tonight, enjoy delicious Japanese food, sake and quality
time with family. _________
Regardless of where you are in the world, I wish you a very happy and healthy 2010. My best wishes from Oita, Japan. ________
