One hundred and twenty-five years ago today, Miyagi Chojun (Mas Oyama) – sensei was born.  It is a good time to remember the shoulders we are standing on, and reflect on your karate.

His style lives on stronger (though more fractured) then I think he could have imagined.  His burial site and memorial in Japan is visited often by practitioners.

While I am a Kyokushin practitioner, unlike some I do not revere the man, he was after all just a man.  His contribution and accomplishments however I will always hold in high regard.
