I’m pleased to announce the release of the second episode in the Sensei: Masters of Okinawan Karate series.
This episode features Uechi Ryu 10th dan Yoshitsune Senaga who at 82 continues to teach and share his passion for karate.
Thank you to those who have already sponsored and supported the series.
Thank you to Yoshitsune Senaga and his students for allowing us into the dojo twice to film, and to Dell Hamby for helping set up the shoots and assisting with translation.
My passion for this project is growing as I realize that this is a way for the sensei to really talk with the international karate community directly. There’s no celebrity or TV host between the masters and the viewer. It’s simply them talking about their love of the art, and what matters to them.
I’m already setting up interviews with other karate masters for the coming weeks and months. Hopefully we can even keep pushing the quality of the videos to the next level as we purchase a boom mic, better lenses, and more data storage over time.
Thank you to Gary Hughes for volunteering as an additional cameraman, and to my wife Yuki for her help translating and interpreting.
