I’m taking a break from my book on Kyoda Juhatsu. So, rumaging through my documents I found this interview conducted by Hokama Tetsuhiro (Kenshikai founder) with Toguchi Sekichi (Shoreikan founder) published in 1986. The interview is quite long, but I thought I’d translate this small piece on Toguchi’s recollections of the opening of Higa Seko’s dojo; which may have been the first commercial dojo opened on Okinawa after the war. As with everything I write on this blog, you’re welcome to use it provided you link back to the source.
