Tomorrow (7/31/2017) at 5:00PM I retire. I am looking forward to devoting much more time to Isshinryu, my dojo and to the AIKA. I will be traveling from Houston to Seattle area for a family reunion in August and have already been contacted to make a few stops along the way. It will be good to see some old friends in Isshinryu and to make a few new ones.
I started my official training in Isshinryu in March 1975 and it never ceases to amaze me in how fast time seems to fly.
I will post a map of my route and you can contact me if you would like to visit or hold a seminar. I know that we will be heading up through Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska and then cut over to Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and then into Washington. Coming back will be Oregon, California, Nevada, Flagstaff Arizona, New Mexico (as always I will visit Chris Crumbacher in NM)and back home to Texas.
I have pointed out in the past that the AIKA continues to grow and we rely on great karateka like you. I want to Thank Daniel Munoz for the time and service he gave the AIKA as secretary and to welcome Chris Crumbacher as the current secretary. I have had the pleasure to teach seminars across the country and am truly impressed with the caliber of karateka I have met. You make good days great and bad days tolerable. Thank you for your dedication and commitment to Isshinryu.
