16 Students gathered at Blue Ocean Izakaya on December 12, 2018 to celebrate
Bonenkai saying farewell to 2018. What a terrific time eating arguably the best
Japanese/Okinawan food in the Metropolitan Washington DC area (at Blue Ocean
Izakaya, Fairfax, VA), having some refreshments, talking with friends, reviewing some
of the many activities over that last year, and taking a sneak peek into what's coming inthe new year. I know some folks wanted to be there, but couldn't, and we missed you
too. Bye-bye 2018!!!

End of year workout at the World Headquarters Dojo for Uechi-Ryu Karate-Do in
Futenma, Okinawa. Kata Sanchin is Nestor Koichi with Uechi Kansho Sensei.
Karate followed by cleanup of the Dojo - another tradition continues just like in the
1980's when Master Folta was blessed to live in Okinawa and study with Uechi Kanei
Sensei. A great time was had by all. The traditional karate spirit of all who have studied
here remains strong. The leadership of old and new is seamless - feels so good. Thank
you all for your friendship, love and support in 2018!
