I was recently informed (thank you) that there was a DVD available fromYamazatoProductions featuring Grand MasterSeikichiOdo. It is the complete system of OkinawaKenpoKarate andKobudo. If you study OkinawaKenpothis video is a must have. Master Odo demonstrates all the open hand and weaponkata. It includes weaponskumite. The video was filmed in adojoand outside on the grass. It appears to be taken from a personal video library. Myamazon.compackage arrived a few days ago and I could not wait to sit and watch. This video is a gem for anyone practicing OkinawaKenpo.
I was fortunate to meet Master Odo in 1994. He travelled to theHonbufor a training seminar. What an amazing experience! I was a green belt and a bit overwhelmed. I never had a photo taken with him (kicking self). There was an outside demo that year and Master Odo accompanied thedojo. I remember that I demonstrated atunfakata. He told me that I did a goodkataand when he left he called me a strong green belt. The next time he was at theHonbu, my husband was starting thedojo. We had a picnic at our house and Master Odo came. Master Odo, Grand Master of OkinawaKenpo... in my house! He approved of the house/dojocombination. Master Odo suggested that we train outside behind thedojo. He enjoyed the picnic and even helped at the grill.
I have two sets ofShodan (1996)certificates. One set was issued by my instructor and the Federation President. The second set is signed by MasterSeikichiOdo, 10thDan.
