An updated edition of Higaonna Sensei’s The History of Karate - Goju Ryu is nearing completion and will be published this year.

Classical Fighting Arts magazine…
…will feature an article on Hojo Undo in its next edition, Vol 2 No.18 Issue 41. Written by honbu staff member, Brent Pawlik, it was photographed at Higaonna Sensei’s dojo by CFA staff.

Goju Ryu DVDs now available internationally.
The DVDs produced by Higaonna Sensei with Tsunami Productions set the technical standard for his students around the world.

On Friday April 23, Higaonna Sensei held a private class at Honbu Dojo as part of the Classical Fighting Arts magazine 2012 spring seminars. Twelve members of the EKKF dojo from Cumbria, England, trained with Higaonna Sensei and Kuramoto Sensei from 10:00 AM until 12:00 PM.

At the Okinawa Prefectural Budokan on April 6 Higaonna Sensei, assisted by his student Marius Betz, taught the afternoon seminar to an international class of karateka attending the second spring 2012 CFA magazine seminar event. Students came from as far afield as Australia, Denmark, Canada’s Northwest Territories, and Poland.

Higaonna Sensei’s complete range of instructional DVDs produced in conjunction with Tsunami Productions of Westlake Village, California, will be on sale at his Budo Sai in Okinawa in July.

Brent Pawlik, the most capable manager of honbu dojo for some time now, returned to Australia recently with his wife Ryoko San and son, Taiyo, to deal with a family emergency. We will miss them while there are away, and look forward to their return.
