Gichin Funakoshi

Thought you might find interesting, this article of our Founder, Gichin Funakoshi.  Much of it is about how much effort it took to make it to training in the old days (er, nights) and some of his sacrifices during that era of change throughout the country.  Anyways, about three-quarters of the way down the article, there’s a recollection of a Mr. Togawa during the many typhoons (hurricanes) that occur in Okinawa.  I think you might find it hard to believe how Master Funakoshi rode out the storm.
