September Update - Late news but Good news!!

UIKA Family:

I apologize for the late news and updates.  I was traveling in July and August, then preparing for a work so time on the "blog" was minimal.

July was a great karate month.  We had time together at the combined UIKA/Tokushin symposium.  With Sensei Mitchum, Bartusevics Sensei, Tokomura Sensei, Adams Sensei present we had a wealth of knowledge to draw upon.  WOW, I was humbled to share floor time with these folks. Additionally, who does a better job hosting than Sensei John, Sensei Cindy, and Sensei Sheri?  Thank You to our hosts!

The UIKA family shared time on the floor with the Tokushin Family and we had a great time.  Jeff Perkins Sensei and Carol Womack Sensei did a great job of not only presenting the Tokushin Weapons systems, but demonstrated their great roots in Isshin Ryu.

Congrats to the folks who were promoted by the UIKA and to Sensei Adams for the Lifetime Achievement Award.  Also, several folk receiving rank in the Tokushin Kobudo system!

Last but not least, Sensei Mitchum, Jim Mitchum, and I were at the Hall of Fame weekend.  We had a great time seeing old friends and participating in the tournament.  Several members of the Holloway Dojo won in kata and sparring.

K.I.A.I. National Championships

UIKA family:

I attended the K.I.A.I. national Championships this weekend.  The tournament is hosted by Southfield Martial Arts/Master Willie Adams. Conell Loveless helped and promoted the tournament.

Friday I participated in the KIAI seminar and taught both bunkai and Oyo bunkai using Seisan kata.  I saw many old friends and had a wonderful time.

I was honored to sit in for Sensei Mitchum and accepted his award for the "Legion of Honor".  On behalf of Sensei Mithcum thank you for the wonderful award, we at the UIKA are grateful to be apart of the honor. The K.I.A.I. is always fun, great hosts, providing valuable information. Most of all it is a fun weekend.
