A 6th grade karateka wins a prize
Today is “Ryūkyū History and Culture Day”. A related ceremony will be held at the Okinawa Karate Kaikan this afternoon, but here is a little scoop prior the ceremony.
On this day’s occasion, a logo mark, Ryūkyūan poem, photo + catch phrase contest was held.
Maeshiro Gō, a relative of Maeshiro Shusei sensei, Hanshi 10th dan in Uechi-ryū and kobudō, is among the prize recipients! Maeshiro Gō is originally from the Uechi-ryū Aja Shūbukan Ryūshikai and currently trains at the Gōjū-ryū Nakamoto Juku.
His catch copy: “While thinking of the predecessors of karate”
