Our Okinawan masters visit the United States on a regular basis to assess our students and our instructors. A formal report is presented to both the Japanese government and the relevant governing dojos in the Okinawan Prefecture.
We also encourage our students to travel with us to Okinawa to train and learn.
In Okinawa on October 23, 2016, our school participated in the Guinness Book Of World Record Challenge to have the most karate students in the world perform a kata together.
The world record was broken with 3,793 karateka performing at the Uchinanchu Festival in Okinawa City, Japan.
