Sensei Toshihiro Oshiro

Today I had the opportunity to stop by and pay respect to Sensei Toshihiro Oshiro, who is visiting Hawaii to conduct bo and sai seminars for Sensei Kiyohisa Hirano's Japan International Karate Center. In recent years, I have observed Hirano Sensei's students performing Yamani-Ryu kata in local tournaments.

Even if only briefly, it was a real pleasure to observe Oshiro Sensei teaching. I also admire how dedicated the instructors and students in attendance were to learning the beautiful art of Yamani-Ryu bojutsu. I hope that they realize how fortunate they are to be able to learn from such a fine instructor as Oshiro Sensei.
