JANUARY 2012 KATAS

"The Way: Who Will Pass It On Straight and Well"

Upcoming Events


Reflections...

That symbol with the tiger inside the circle is the Tora no Maki, or the Tiger Roll. This drawing was originally created by a Japanese man named Hoan Kusugi who was a friend and student of Funakoshi Gichin, the founder of Shotokan Ryu Karate. He was reportedly instrumental in convincing Funakoshi to teach karate in Japan. He also was the man who first convinced Funakoshi to write his knowledge of karate into a book, and promised him that if he would, he would design the book and make a painting for the cover. He drew it specifically in order to illustrate the cover of Funakoshi’s book Karate-do Kyohan. Kusugi is thought to be as important as Kano in convincing Funakoshi to stay in Japan to teach karate. The character up in the Northeast quadrant of the circle is part of the artist’s signature.
