This site is based on my daily practice of Shotokan Karate-Do here in Oita City, Japan. More than anything else, unlike the majority of other karate websites, this page is primarily dedicated to Budo Karate training itself; that is, Karate-Do as a vehicle for holistic development.

As promised here are some hanami pictures. The sakura this year were typically breath taking! Here Mizuho and I are wearing traditional Japanese kimono at Nakatsu-jo.
After my yudansha-geiko at the Renshinkan dojo we went to the castle, for photos with the sakura, and the 'usual customs'. Needless to say, we had a wonderful time.
