As we can see, the one thing that makes Okinawa unique is its people who will go out of their way to assist strangers. It is only appropriate that again we pay homage to the hospitality of the Okinawans we met who again showed their hospitality. In accordance with the Kenpo gokui, we have followed its principles which came from Chinese culture.
The Ryukyu were named Okinawa by the Japanese so it is fitting to name the tour after the name used before it was renamed.
The a€?2011 Ryukyu Propriety Cultural and Martial Toura€? was exceptional for so many reasons but mostly because of the people that I had the opportunity to share the experience with. This was my third journey to Okinawa and I had the opportunity to share the experience with Heather Rancic on all three trips. I am thankful that Sensei and Michie allowed three of my senior students to accompany us on this trip. I would be remiss not to thank all our families, as we could not have made this trip without the support and sacrifice of our families. Our drive to the airport was quick and easy - little traffic with so many people on summer vacation and school not yet in session.
On the plane I finally had the opportunity to watch a documentary on Buddhism that I downloaded to my iPad months ago. While waiting for our bags I paid special attention to the sea of green duffle bags and camouflage backpacks that the military men and women were sifting through on the carousel. While waiting for Sensei and Michie to arrive we managed to sneak into a restaurant at the airport just prior to their closing for our first Okinawan Soba of the trip.
We also took a short drive over to visit the tomb and pay our respects to Tatsuo Shimabukua€™s second son Shinsho. We walked through the village as Sensei tried to locate the exact site of the Chan (Kyan) dojo where Shimabuku Tatsuo Sensei officially named Isshinryu. We looked at the site trying to visualize the entrance and the changes that had taken place over the years relative to photos we had seen.
As the conversation continued he told us that Shinsho (Ciso) Shimabuku was his childhood friend and they used to play together as kids. We returned to the location a few days later with two photos of the Chan dojo so we could compare them to the current property. Sensei fell asleep in the car on the way to Tatsuo Shimabukua€™s tomb and entrusted Heather and me to get the group there safely. It is always an emotional and moving experience touring the exhibits, which paint a vivid picture of the Battle of Okinawa.
On the grounds of the museum stands the cornerstone of peace where the names of all those that perished in the Battle of Okinawa, regardless of nationality, soldiers or civilians, are inscribed. In my opinion this is one of the most important places that any visitor to Okinawa should see. In late March 1945, a fierce battle such as has rarely been seen in history took place on these islands. One afternoon we visited Ryukyu Mura, which is an authentic re-creation of an ancient Okinawan village. We had the opportunity to train with Iha Kotaro Sensei and Iha Mitsutada Sensei four nights while on Okinawa. Mitsutada demonstrated his hidden drumming talent when he showed us how to play the Eisa drum that I bought for my son, Gregory.
Sensei wanted to visit Higa, a woman who lives on the property adjacent to where the Kyan Dojo was located. A few days later we returned so that Sensei and Emi could drop off a small gift to Higasan to thank her for her time and conversation earlier in the week. We visited Nakagusuku Jo (Castle), which is believed to have been constructed in the late 14th and early 15th centuries.
In 1853, the Commodore Perry expedition came to Japan to pressure the country to open its borders for trade.
Nakagusuku Castle is also the location where Advincula Sensei performed many of the empty hand katas in his videos.
We also saw the unfinished hotel that sits adjacent to the castle grounds but did not venture inside. Some of the construction workers left after hearing the warnings, and many others left the project after several workers died in construction accidents. One night Michiea€™s sister, Yasue, brought us to a local festival in Uezu Town, Uruma City.
We saw a Shorinryu karate school led by Miyagi Atsushi perform a demonstration at the event. One of the places that Sensei had added to the schedule was Sefa Utaki, most sacred site on Okinawa, where many high priestesses throughout history have prayed for the prosperity of the Ryukyu Kingdom. We visited Shurijo Castle; a fortress originally built in the 15th century that was the political, economic and cultural center of the Ryukyu kingdom for hundreds of years. Thank you for your teachings and for continuing to pass down Isshinryu as taught by your teacher, Tatsuo Shimabuku. Just about every house had a set of shisa in front to protect the home.A  Each set includes a male (with the mouth open to let the good spirits in) and a female (with the mouth closed to keep the evil spirits out). Final grades were averaged among scores from pre and post instructional testing, class participation, field estimations of speeds and distances and the studenta€™s final, formal presentations.

Houston We Have A Problem-Some 100 radar guns were taken out of service by the Harris County Constables after media reported officers had received little or no training on the operation of the radar speed enforcement systems. The focus of the study is to determine if the ban has reduced accident i??and fatalities in school zones.
When seat belt legislation was first passed it was viewed legally as a secondary offense meaning the officer could not make a traffic stop for the infraction. The Chicago Police Department presented a PowerPoint presentation of training and use of laser systems by the Department. The focus of the study is to determine if the ban has reduced accident and fatalities in school zones.A  TSU intends to use SMLa€™s long term study of cell phone use in school zones in Illinois, Colorado, and Texas completed in late 2009.
Both research projects will be combined for national publication in police and public safety publications.A  Analysis has been made in Mississippi, Alabama, and Colorado.
The Annual Test will take place in El Paso on a test course SML has used for the past ten years. Both El Paso and Las Cruces enacted city-wide bans on hand held cell phone use while driving in early spring of 2010. Digital Ally has renamed the new entry Laser Ally.A  See Digital Allya€™s website for specifications and details about the new entry. Many of the tours are named after themes of courtesy and this is correct since Okinawa is known for the gate of courtesy Shureimon (a®?c¤?e–€) (or Shurei no mon). It was intercourse between Ryukyu Kingdom and China since 1372 that Okinawa began its communications with the Emperors of China. As you know, today many Okinawans readily admit that their society is champuru (a??a??a??a?—a?«a??) or a mixture.
I often speak about prior trips at the dojo and it was awesome to have Kathy Fawcett, Erik Heller and Lorena Verdun experience Okinawa first hand. We are fortunate to have children, spouses and parents that are willing to sacrifice so that we can do what we love to do. I enjoyed getting to know them better as they are very dedicated karate-ka and fun people to be with.
When we were speaking on the phone Kathy called me for dinner and Sensei told me to let her know that a€?I am on the phone with headquarters.a€? Never a good position to be in, having two masters with conflicting orders.
The bags all looked the same and each enlisted soldier was trying to find their belongings.


On the first we began from the Hotel Harbor and walked north on route 75 toward the former location of the Agena dojo. Sensei told us the story of how Kichiro as first son inherited the position of taking over Isshinryu.
I never had the opportunity to meet Ciso but have learned much of him from Advincula Sensei.
While checking out the property we noticed a man about 70 gardening directly across the street from the old dojo location.
When he awoke he was in front of Tatsuoa€™s tomb but he will never know the route he traveled to get there.
When announcing the name of his new system, Tatsuo Shimabuku said, a€?All things begin with one.a€? His one vision has touched so many across the world. They did this to prevent dying of starvation and because the Japanese soldiers told them that if caught by the Americans they and their children would be tortured. One could spend days in the museum and we therefore chose to spend the majority of our time in the history and folklore sections.
Old homes were brought to Ryukyu Mura from all over Okinawa and reassembled to preserve the history of the island. The dojo is on the second floor of a residential building with hardwood floors and no air conditioning. He gave us an education on different Okinawan fabrics and especially liked the one that sensei had selected for my bo cover.
We had lots of laughs and received an education on many things this eveninga€¦karate, beer, fabric and drumming.
Sensei had a photo of Higasan with Kyan Chotoku, her father and others that was taken in the late 1920a€™s.
We took a group photo with Higasan, thanked her and began to leave, as we did not want to overstay our welcome. The castle is divided into 6 separate enclosures and is one of the best-preserved castles on Okinawa. The story behind the haunted hotel is that in the early 1980a€™s a Naha businessman decided to build a luxury hotel on the hillside of Nakagusuku castle.
At this festival we had the opportunity to see a number of performances including a shishi dance and a karate demonstration. The Shishi dance is a traditional dance that has been passed down from generation to generation for centuries. Prior to the school going on stage to perform the demonstration, Sensei told me that they would likely perform Sunsu kata.
They cooked great food and it gave us an opportunity to spend some additional time with Michiea€™s family. While visiting the site we witnessed two women set up an offering at some of the key locations within the site and pray to their ancestors. The Sanshin is a popular Okinawan instrument that looks a little like a small snake skin banjo. Shurijo has been rebuilt a number of times prior to ita€™s being leveled during the Battle of Okinawa in WWII.
I had seen Okinawan dancers a number of times in the past and they were all impressive but I think these were by far the very best. Okinawa is so appropriately named the a€?Island of Courtesy.a€? Everyone that we came in contact with was extremely friendly, understanding and helpful. Thank you for allowing me to join you on the a€?2011 Ryukyu Propriety Cultural and Martial Arts Toura€? and for allowing me to share the experience with three of my students.
When announcing the name of his new system, Tatsuo Shimabuku said, a€?All things begin with one.a€?A  His one vision has touched so many across the world. The museum is dedicated to telling the story of the Battle of Okinawa during World War II.A  The museum honors all those who died on Okinawa during the Battle of Okinawa and tells of all the innocent life that was so tragically lost during the 82-day battle.
He is a relative of Michie and Yasue.A  He had a factory at his home and his specialty is using red clay to make unglazed shisa, awamori jars and pottery urns used for burial. Field exercises mandated officers be able to estimate speeds of vehicles as many courts require i??the officer to establish a valid visual tracking history prior to substantiate their observation with a radar or laser gun reading. Department Of Justice Expert Witness Testimony-The United States Department of Justice called on SML in August 2010 to provide expert witness testimony in a wrongful death suit brought by the survivora€™s estate against officera€™s action in a deadly pursuit. Students were also required to compute a speed field study to the 85th percentile using a speed display furnished by SML.A  Students recorded the speeds of 100 vehicles with no speed display present and then recorded the speeds of 100 vehicles when a speed display attached to a SML vehicle was used. Department Of Justice Expert Witness Testimony-The United States Department of Justice called on SML in August 2010 to provide expert witness testimony in a wrongful death suit brought by the survivora€™s estate against officera€™s actionA  in a deadly pursuit.A  The pursuit involved the use of police radar guns as well as established pursuit procedures. SMLa€™s role was to describe to the members the history of lasera€™s use by law enforcement, present a summary of legal cases from around the country on laser use by law enforcement, and a description of the scientific principles involved in laser assessment of speeds.
Las Cruces recently passed a ban on all hand held cell phone use in the city of 100,000.A  El Paso, Tx, some 45 miles away passed a similar ban by a city council vote of 5-3.
It further intends to use SMLa€™s research of compliance with the new law related to enforcement of the legislation. Such a listing is necessary to compile reliable data on cell phone use before and after causation.
SML intends to expand the sample size to include New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona in the final analysis. By attaching speed displays to patrol units via a standard 2a€? trailer hitch, many objections of speed displays are eliminated.A  The use of radar trailers is cumbersome and requires a spot to set them up.
The TruCam also features a built-in GPS module along with video capability.A  Other attempts have been made to mate a digital camera with laser guns. Officers will also be required to estimates speeds and distances of vehicles in the establishment of a valid visual tracking history.
Latter the tiny kingdom was subjugated and conquered by invasion of Ryukyu by forces of the Japanese Satsuma.
Their proper guidance, patience and willingness to share so much of themselves is what made this experience so enriching. This was Kathya€™s second trip to Okinawa and I am fortunate that my wife is as passionate about these trips as I am. Emi spent much of the trip working hard to translate at a number of interviews that Sensei arranged.
One question that was posed in the film wasa€¦What is more useful, a pile of gold or a pile of mud? While walking to the dojo sensei showed the former locations of the sai-maker and the tatami-maker.
Sensei explained how quickly things are changing on Okinawa and that many of the old historical locations related to Isshinryu have disappeared. One of our first stops was the house where Shimabuku Shinsho (Tatsuoa€™s 2nd son who was known as Ciso to most Americans) lived.
Unfortunately sensei was awake on the trip back from Tatsuoa€™s tomb and he got to enjoy the ride past the local livestock, water dam and garbage dump. Through the teachings of Advincula Sensei, Shimabuku Tatsuo Senseia€™s vision and thoughts live on. The museum displays very graphic photos and does not sugar-coat how horrific this battle was. In truth, the Americans treated the Okinawans well providing them with medical attention, food and shelter.
Starting left to right, the kitchen which typically is behind the womena€™s sitting room (ichibanza-ura) since traditionally Okinawan women do almost all the preparing and serving of food. Ryukyu Mura also displays many other aspects of Okinawan culture including music, dance, instruments, bingata (Okinawan fabric) and pottery.
One of my teenage students, Cheyenne Smith, is learning to sew and decided to set up a little business selling bo covers.
We also saw the new Hija Bridge that replaced the one on which Kyan Chotoku used to practice Chinto Kata.
He was interested in interviewing the woman to see what she knew of Kyan and the exact location of his dojo on the property. She told us of a time when the Hija River flowed and how she used to swim and fish in the river as a little girl. This is due to its durable limestone construction and because it suffered little damage during the Battle of Okinawa. Perry wrote of Nakagusuku Castle in his journala€¦a€?The material used to build the fortress is limestone and the masonry is an admirable construction.
Many villagers warned him that the grounds were sacred, but he ignored all the warnings and continued to move forward with his project. Two people are required to play the Shishi, one playing the head and the other filling out the back end. I did not understand why a Shorinryu school would perform Tatsuo Shimabukua€™s Isshinryu kata. At one point during the evening Yasue began teaching an Okinawan fan dance to Heather, Kathy and Lorena. The word Sanshin translates as a€?three strings.a€? Kathy and I bought a large drum for our son Gregory.
We swam at the island resort and found a great new location to take formal photos on the beach.
The castle has been rebuilt as close to its original specifications as possible using pre-war photographs and plans that were not destroyed.
I think dancing at Shuri Castle in Okinawa must be the same as making on Broadway in the United States. We also designed a t-shirt and had them made to commemorate the 2011 Ryukyu Propriety and Cultural Martial Arts Tour.
Lorena was like a kid in a candy store and we had to pry her out of the store with a crowbar. We saw a weight room and a karate class practicing ju-kumite on the first floor, a kendo class on the next floor and a judo class on the third floor. Many of the Okinawan people do not seem to have much in the way of material things but they truly value people and relationships and are so rich because of this.
Some of the older homes have a hinpun (approximately 5a€™ high and 10a€™ wide wall) between the road and front door.
We also saw the new Hija Bridge that replaced the one on which Kyan Chotoku used to practice Chinto Kata.A  Following the war the Army Corp of Engineers built a new bridge connecting the towns of Kadena and Yomitan. The Eisa performers included men who dance with drums, women who perform traditional Okinawan dance, Eisa clowns and a sanshin band. The media report also found radar guns, tuning forks, and officers had not been re-certified per state directives, i.e. SML also presented to the members Illinois use and legislative approval of laser based photo systems used in Illinois work zones per the legislature approved law 625 ILCS 7-Automated Traffic Control Systems in Highway Construction and Maintenance Zones. Radar Signals replaces the newsletter Radar Waves.A  Radar Waves is updated every three months. With laser guns, SML recommended to the court a Daily Laser Verification Log be kept by all officers using laser guns for speed enforcement.A  This log contains daily checks of the laser gun before it is put into speed enforcement use and includes a Known Distance Test and Vertical and Horizontal Sight Alignment test. However, these attempts have been bulky and heavy.A  The TruCam gives police agencies evidence of speeding inA  a compact package easily used by one officer. While a prefecture of Japan, Okinawa while similar to Japanese culture also has its own culture that is unique to Okinawa. In 1945, Okinawa was again invaded by American invasion and is still occupied by American bases on this tiny island.
While many Okinawans resent the American bases on its soil, they do not hold a grudge against Americans and as we saw, will go out of their way to assist and help. It became much easier once I found a map entirely in English (too bad this was on day seven of the trip). I still consider myself a young man but gave thought to the fact that many of them are more than 20 years my junior.
He stressed that it is important to document these locations and the history for future generations. He told us that as a kid Shinsho was always good at building things and that he later became a shop teacher. Mitsutada explained that only the original Orion is beer and is clearly designated so on the can.
She was reluctant as she approached the gate to her property with ten Americans standing in front.


Once formally introduced by name, they stood up and said, a€?You are Advinculaa€¦you are famous on Okinawa in Isshinryu.a€? The conversation continued and they indicated that they would be having the symposium this October and another next fall.
The stones are processed in a very interesting way and are carefully shaped and jointed, even though cement or mortar is not used. The man spent millions of dollars trying to build the perfect hotel and continued to ignore warnings about it being close to sacred land and restless spirits. Many who have entered the abandoned hotel over the years have reported seeing ghosts and hearing strange sounds. The dance is believed to ward off evil spirits and bring prosperity and a good harvest to the region. The group performed a number of kata including Seisan, Chinto, part of Kusanku and yesa€¦Sunsu. Sensei Yasue is a very good dancer and she seemed to have fun passing her knowledge on to the girls. The kama in the hardware store are razor sharp and much less expensive then those sold by Shureido. We drank and ate with the local Okinawans and made conversation the best we could with the language barrier. I was impressed with the near perfection of each movement and with how closely the movements of each dancer were synchronized.
The shirts have a dragon-shaped enso on the back with the outline of Okinawa in the center. The women's sitting room is where the women would gather while they prepared the food.A  Next, the main sitting room (nibanza-ura), with the altar placed in front, and then and mena€™s sitting room (sanbanza-ura) where usually the men would sit in social gatherings. The old stone bridge had a curve in it while the new one is as straight as an arrow as the Army Corp of Engineers are all about functionality.
Once formally introduced by name, they stood up and said, a€?You are Advinculaa€¦you are famous on Okinawa in Isshinryu.a€?A  The conversation continued and they indicated that they would be having the symposium this October and another next fall. Some 300 Sheriffs and staff from California, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, and Texas attended.
The suspect fled the scene although police had correctly used Code 3 procedures, and eluded officers resulting in a fatal crash.
The cell phone ban cities are using tint meters and laser guns that take pictures of offenders to help enforce local ordinances.A A  Cities using photo enforcement already have the legal judicial notice for such use.
SML called for a standardized training program with strong recommendations on re-certification of tuning forks, radar and laser guns, and officers. Police laser guns are distance measuring devices first patented for police speed enforcement use by Laser Technologies Inc., LTI, in 1989.
All of these assessed work zones had different work zone speed limits ranging from 50 mph-60 mph. A unique feature of the TruCam is DBC or Distance Between Cars.A  This feature automatically monitors a lead vehicle and trailing vehicle to report if the trailing vehicle is traveling too close to the lead vehicle resulting in a citation. A third criteria will be the officers presenting to the class a thirty minute presentation for evaluation. As always, Michiea€™s sister Yasue and her family welcomed us into her home and treated us like family. I was most impressed with the poise and maturity of Robby and Maya both inside and outside the dojo. I took a moment to reflect and feel thankful for all they do for the people of the United States of America. They did remember the dojo, told us we were two blocks away and pointed us in the right direction. He told us that he did remember the dojo and described in detail how it looked many years ago.
The Orion Rich, Orion Southstar and Orion Special are actually not beers but are actually malt beverages. We brought back lots of Okinawan fabric so that she can now offer some limited bo covers made with traditional Okinawan fabric and patterns.
Present at the meeting were all the members of our group as well the following peoplea€¦Irei Hiroshi, Uehara Kunio, a translator and student of Eizo Shimabuku, Hatoma Itsuko, the grandniece of Kyan on hi wifea€™s side and Makiya Kiyoshi, the Superintendent of Education in Kadena. Sensei indicated that if they provide him with enough notice he would do his best to coordinate his 2012 visit to Okinawa with their event. I think this work will last for a long time.a€? The advanced construction techniques used have withstood wind and rain for more than 500 years. It is also believed to be good luck if you are playfully bitten by a shishi as it parades among the audience. Sensei later explained to me that Miyagi Atsushi is from the Kaneshi Eiko, Shigema Genyu and Kaneshiro Kenji lineage. One of the other highlights of the evening for me was watching Erik try and politely choke down the seaweed jello.
We were also invited to dance with the Okinawans and assist the band by playing the drum and sanshin. El Paso, TX and Las Cruces, NM have had great success in the reduction of hand held cell phones by drivers.
SML has combined a listing of requirements from all fifty states on the training and re-certification of equipment including tuning forks. United States Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood in a meeting of 21 September 2010 alluded to a national ban on hand held cell phone use similar to national mandates of seat belt legislation.A  States were encouraged to enforcement such seat belt use legislation under the threat of withholding federal highway funds. The first police laser was sold in 1991.A  Laser for laser enforcement has been with us longer than the internet. Females were twice as likely to be on their phones in both groups compared to male drivers. All work zones were on interstate highways with speed limits ranging from 70 mph to 60 mph before and after the work zone speed limit.
I did have to keep an eye on my ipad as Yasuea€™s 4-year old granddaughter, Kana, enjoyed playing the games my son had downloaded. It is students like Kathy, Erik and Lorena that inspire me every time I set foot in the dojo.
Sensei talks of a time when the exchange rate was a very favorable 400:1 and he felt like a wealthy man on Okinawa. At the end of the trip I told them that they represented their family, their teachers (Mike and Claudia Whiteley) and their dojo well. Sensei told us the story of how Angi Uezu and his wife Yukiko (Tatsuoa€™s 3rd daughter) used to live live across the streetA from the Agena honbu dojo property. Both Higasan and Senseia€™s faces lit up as they continued to remember their common friend Shinsho. I did, however find it challenging to work from the deeper zenkutsu dachi that is predominant in all RyuKonKai kata.
Higasan first indicated that we should have made an appointment and told us that she was very busy and did not have much time to talk.
We were not very good at any of it but the Okinawans appreciated that we took an interest in their culture and tried. SML used the instructional manual of Understanding Police Traffic Radar And Laser, Library of Congress # 98-87615 with accompanying PowerPoint CD. Laser use by law enforcement is dramatically increasingly as it can pinpoint one vehicle in a group and now with inclement weather mode can be operated inside the vehicle through the windshield by officers. Unfortunately, the fleeing suspect died at the scene after a head on collision with an approaching vehicle. Senator John McCain.A  Training officers from the various departments were in attendance and sought SMLa€?s advice on NHTSA and state training requirements for the operation of police radar and laser guns. USDOT issued similar mandates to states when determining alcohol BAC levels of .08% for DUI enforcement. The first working laser was introduced by Theodore Maiman in 1960 and was immediately put into use by NASA measuring the distance from the earth to the moon and determining the speed of rotation of both celestial bodies.A  As a result of SMLa€™s testimony, all defendants were found guilty and the court issued judicial notice on all laser and radar speed enforcement system used by the departments.
SML reviewed research from various state DOTs and federal agencies all agreeing drivers drive the speed they feel a€?reasonable and prudenta€? regardless of the posted speed limit. Sensei Advincula has always explained to me that in order to better understand Isshinryu and all Okinawan karate, one must gain and appreciation for Okinawan customs, culture, history and traditions. This was known by some, to be the run-off or black belt dojo since senior students often used it when the main (honbu) dojo was crowded.
Sensei and Emi conversed with the younger Higa and he too remembered the dojo and the many foreigners that would come to train.
