Hawaii Okinawa Today, a cable program on 'Olelo, Oceanic Channel 53, will feature Part 2 of the program on Okinawan Karate, specifically the Hawaii Karate Kenkyukai's demonstration to celebrate the donation of the Hawaii Karate Museum rare book collection to the University of Hawaii. The program will premiere on Monday, May 16th at 7 p.m., and be shown again on Saturday, May 21st at 5 p.m. It will be one hour. Again, that is on Oceanic Channel 53.
Part 1 of the program featured my lecture on the early history of Karate in Hawaii at the Hamilton Library at the University of Hawaii. Please see: Hawaii Okinawa Today Episode 335
I hope that you can watch it!
The program is sponsored by the HUOA (Hawaii United Okinawa Association) and was created by Mr. Henry Isara, who came to my office earlier this week to film an interview. I was first interviewed by Hawaii Okinawa Today back in 1999. At that time, Mr. Isara was the cameraman and the interviewer was Wayne Miyahira (who passed away not so long ago). Mr. Isara now conducted the interview and edited the program. I really appreciate his hard work and dedication to Okinawan culture.
We all practice Okinawan Karate. Let's not forget to study the "Okinawan" in Okinawan Karate!
