Special Training In Okinawa is an amazing experience in which all serious students should
participate. It involves traveling to the land where karate was born and living with a karate
legend, our Grandmaster Shimabukuro Eizo. During the 2-week experience, he will cover all 24
katas, the moves behind the katas, as well as all of his jujutsu and kobudo sets. Students also
eat most meals with him and hear many great stories and philosophies. In addition, the trip
includes site seeing and relaxation (swimming in the local aqua colored ocean, going to the spa).
It has transformed my life and the lives of others. It's a trip that must be experienced!
