the Shorin-Ryu Karate USA 30th Anniversary Commemorative
In anticipation of the production of the Shorin-Ryu Karate
USA 50th Anniversary Commemorative Journal we should all
reread or read for the first time the Shorin-Ryu Karate
USA 30th Anniversary Commemorative Journal. This book is
not only filled with pictures of Master Ueshiro and your
Sensei from 20 years ago, but it also has well written articles.
You can have fun trying to figure out the authors of these
literary pieces. If you do not have a copy and have never
read the journal ask one of your Sensei or Sempai to borrow
it. Or you can read the entire journal on line by visiting:
Some of my personal favorite articles include: An Interview
with "Grand Master Ansei Ueshiro," "Moving
Zen - The Traditions Of Karate And Zen," "Mae-Geri,"
"Kata Power," "Kara The Emptiness,"
and "Karate And Physics." Avail yourself to this
journal and all of the articles, stories, poems, art work,
and pictures. As Hanshi would say, It is gold.
