Mas Oyama – Rest in PeaceEvents & Holidays . Training notes
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.
