Thanks to the hard work of Sensei Angel Lemus, please see:
Our lecture (Karate in the Ryukyu Kingdom, Okinawa Prefecture, and Hawaii. How is Okinawan Culture Spread through Karate?) was broken into five parts.
I will create a page at the Hawaii Karate Museum website to more fully describe the lecture, but I wanted to let you see the videos as the last part was just uploaded tonight (Hawaii time).
Please let all your friends and contacts know about this online lecture. You are welcome to link to the page or videos. It is possible that a single online video might be available at a later date (but it would be about 95 minute long).
It was a true honor for me to be involved in this lecture with my good friend and senior, Sensei Pat Nakata. We both are very grateful to Lemus Sensei for his expertise and hard work. As you will see, he seamlessly blended our Powerpoint slides with the lecture, so that you can see and hear exactly what the audience saw and heard that day.
Nakata Sensei and I hope that this lecture might encourage more people to practice Karate and to explore the rich history and culture of the Ryukyu Kingdom and Okinawa. All Karate students share this legacy... and the responsibility to preserve and pass it on.
