Tookachi – Celebrating 88 years

Thought I’d post a few pics from the Tookachi 88th birthday celebration for Seikichi Iha. These are actually low res video stills but they’re enough to give an idea of what happens.

Traditional Ryukyu dancers wearing hanagasa hats open proceedings.

Iha Sensei pouring sake for honored guests and greeting those who come to give their best wishes. (His son sits to his left, his daughter to his right.)

 Masahiko Tokashiki sensei chatting with Iha Sensei.

Miguel da Luz catching up with Iha sensei.

So many members of the Beikoku Shido-kan Karate-do Association in attendance, along with numerous Okinawan karate masters.

Thank you for having me to your party! Congratulations Iha Sensei.
