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.

Brian Toomey Sensei
It was great to finally meet Brian Toomey Sensei - 6th Dan who attended my seminars in Germany.
He is my senpai (senior) in Karate-Do and is a hard training budoka; moreover, he is a super person with a great sense of humour! Domo arigato gozaimashita Brian Sensei.
