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.

Trip to Wellington
Here are some pics from Wellington. As always, thanks so much to Stamoulis Sensei, Helen and Orestis and also to Christian, who paired up with me on the spur of the moment for an impromptu karate embu (demonstration). Mizuho and I also had a chance to catch up with my cousin Cassandra and meet her son Zac. Not to mention a nice time with Bon Jovi (of course no pictures included). For those of you unfamiliar with New Zealand I've also added some jpeg's of The Beehive and New Zealand Parliament based in the heart of the capital. Osu!
