Higaonna Sensei

I just heard that Sensei Morio Higaonna (see iogkf.com) was promoted to 10th dan. I wanted to mention this, and offer my congratulations and respect. Higaonna Sensei is one of the most dedicated and skillful Karate instructors I have ever had the privilege to meet. He certainly "walks the walk." I think he trains all the time.

He has also been very generous to and supportive of the Hawaii Karate Museum, and to me personally in my research efforts.

When I have met Higaonna Sensei, he always says, "I am just a student." Irrespective of dan level, I am sure that he is trying to improve himself each and every day. What an example for us.
