It's all about Demura Sensei!






We, his many, many students are excited
to help him celebrate his 50th anniversary
of teaching Karate in the United States,
and all over the world.






For the past 44 years, in late February …
Demura Sensei and Shito-Ryu Genbu-Kai hosts 
the International Goodwill Karate Championships,





with competitors from around the world and locally.
This year there are even more special events.
Thursday is advanced dan (black belt level) training seminars.
Friday starts early with traditional "moichtsuki" (rice pounding)



the traditional hand pounding of rice to make … moichi


followed by international dan testing and ...
Friday evening an advanced preview showing 
of the feature documentary about Demura Sensei





The Real Miyagi.


Kobudo, batto and iai-do training 
and a myriad of pre-tournament workshops on Saturday.

Saturday evening will be a very special black tie banquet.


Demura Sensei's 25th Anniversary banquet


Very special days ahead, indeed.







A smile for Monday …
