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.

Present from Higashihama Sensei & Mrs Higashihama
I'd like to deeply thank Higashihama Sensei & Mrs. Higashihama who last week gave me a very-very special gift.
I was presented with a very high class male kimono, which I will certainly treasure for the rest of my life. Needless to say, Mizuho and I were blown away by this extremely kind gesture.
