Master Akihito Yagi, the grand son of Master Meitoku Yagi

I was moved to see this video clip. Akihito Yagi Sensei is great!

In the video, he said as follows:

"Karate is an art of self defence. You can defend yourself or your 
fellows. We practice karate so that we do not attack first and we 
should always be humble to everyone. Through physical training of 
karate, we can obtain such a mental power."

"My father and grand father are karate masters. I was born in
such a home. When I became three years old, my birthday 
present was a karate-gi (= a karate uniform). I was happy to 
play punching wearing it."

"My grand father, Meitoku Yagi, passed away at the age 
of 92. One year before it, he performed karate when 
he was 91 years old for the last time. He had been 
hospitalized at that time, but when there was an karate 
assembly, he wore karate-gi (= a karate uniform) and 
performed karate. I was moved to see him and almost cried."

"It is true that karate became popular after karate became 
one of competitive sports. However, nowadays karate 
enthusiasts overseas think our  traditional Okinawan 
karate is more valuable and important than sport karate 
after they studied the roots of karate. They realized 
Kata of traditional karate is most important. Many 
karate players who participate in competitive sport 
tournaments are returning to our traditional Okinawan

Psychedelic Trance Party at AJISAI MARKET in KOBE

(from Miiiiibou's twitter) Thanks, Miiiiibou-san!

Last Sunday, 10th May 2015, I went to Kobe to join the psychedelic trance party at Ajisai Market in Kobe, Japan. I shook hands with DJ Hiroto abd DJ Yuki to say "Thank you for the wonderful dance music!." Visit the above-mentioned URL to see me dancing though it is the back view. I wear gray pants and light blue long sleeve shirt.

(from the instagram)
I went to Shinsaibashi, Osaka. In Amerika-mura, I found the cafe named "Tacorice Comedor". I had Tacorice, an Okinawan dish, there. It was very very delicious. I love it!
Tacorice (= tacos + rice)

What a wonderful month! On 19th April 2015, another free psychedelic 
trance party named Beat Harbourwas held in the same place, Nanko 
Sankaku Koen park, Osaka. After I ate tacorice and drank a glass of 
sangria, I danced under the huge bridge. At the pary I became friends 
with Mr. Kei who offered me two glasses of excellent Japanese Sake 
(= rice wine).
