Karate History Tour on July 12th, 2020 – Shidōkan Karate

We conducted a Karate History Tour in Naha on July 12th, 2020 for Yoshiji Soeno Sensei and his wife Iuliana Soeno. Yoshiji Soeno Sensei is a Japanese karateka from the Kyokushin Kaikan (極真会館) and a retired professional welterweight kickboxer. He founded Shidōkan Karate, and is also known as The Tiger of Josai. For those of you who know the video game developer and publisher Capcom and its Street Fighter franchise, the character Ryu is said to be based on Yoshiji Soeno Sensei. It was an honor to have done the tour for them.
