HIGAONNA SENSEI CELEBRATES 70th BIRTHDAY IN OKINAWA

December 25, 2008

On the behalf of all IOGKF International members, we would like to extend our congratulations to Higaonna Morio Sensei for his 70th Birthday and his life long dedication to Karate.

Sensei continues to inspire us in too many ways to name.

Higaonna Sensei received many beautiful cards and presents from members and students all over the world and Sensei passes on his eternal thanks to everyone for their thoughtfulness.

During the Miyagi Chojun Festival (MCF) in Canada this year, a birthday party celebrating Higaonna Sensei's 70th birthday and the IOGKF's 30th anniversary was held.

Attendees to the MCF this year dug deep along with Canadian and American members to purchase Higaonna Sensei a holiday to the Canadian Rocky mountains. Higaonna Sensei had a great time and found it hard at times to describe the amazing scenery and natural beauty he was able to experience.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SENSEI!!!
