Travel Report from Okinawa by Sensei Joe
I wanted to let you know that I had a fantastic trip to Japan. For me, it was a dream come true. I got to spend a week training karate with Higaonna Sensei and some amazing instructors from around the world. I had several “aha” moments during training and doing class in Higaonna Sensei’s dojo was worth the trip alone. Afterwards, I went to mainland Japan – Kyoto, Nara and Tokyo. Every day I was filled with excitement as there was so much to do and see and experience – I was in a samurai fight, experienced a tea ceremony, and was interviewed on national television for my sake expertise! If anyone is thinking about going to the Budosai in 2019, I highly recommend going, and talking to people to have been before to get tips on travel, accommodation, etc.
