Sacramento Martial Arts and Karate
Every day at our dojo in Sacramento we have multiple kids and adult classes. On May 30th 2013, all of our classes did 38 repetitions of Isshinryu Upper and Lower Body Basics in addition to 38 exercises such as push-ups.
It was 38 years ago today that Soke Shimabuku, the founder of Isshinryu karate, passed away. I do believe that it is important for us to remember that karate is bigger than you, me, or any individual dojo. Masters of the past, those Masters with us today, and the Masters of the future-- they carry Isshunryu forward by passing it on to their students just like Soke Shimabuku did.
