Just a quick reminder that we’re fortunate to have Sensei Ed Fujiwara visit us on Saturday, 1 June as guest instructor. Sensei Ed was my teacher from the mid-eighties through the mid-nineties. Sensei Trisha was also lucky enough to train under him during those years. In turn, for four decades, Sensei Ed was a personal student of the late and legendary Master Tetsuhiko Asai, one of the most gifted karateka the world has ever known. Whenever Sensei Ed shares some of his great karate knowledge, he is also sharing some of the unique insights that he gained during his long association with his mentor and friend, Master Asai. Any of you who have spent time with him knows that a session with Sensei Ed, is never a “usual day at training”, haha.
On that Saturday, please come early – I always arrive well before our 09:00 am start time, but inevitably, find Sempai James, Sensei Ed, and Sensei Ed’s father, already dressed and warming up for class.
