Exhibit and Demonstration

I have been overloaded and totally consumed by preparations for an upcoming exhibit at the Bridge Gallery of the Hamilton Library at the University of Hawaii entitled Karate: From Okinawa to Hawaii. In connection with the exhibit, I was asked to also arrange a demonstration and to give an academic lecture.
