The USIKA would like to take a moment to honor Master Tatsuo Shimabuku during this 109th anniversary of his birth on September 19, 1908.
His karate has brought countless numbers of people together, allowing them to learn an effective means of self-defense and imparting the discipline to succeed in life. We pledge to carry on the legacy left behind by Master Tatsuo Shimabuku, Master Harold Long, and all those who dedicated their time and effort to ensure that we learned “good karate.” They did their part, now join us in doing ours.
