    Default Katsuya Miyahira, Sensei has died.

    Katsuya Miyahira Sensei of Shorin Ryu Shidokan has passed on 11/28/10.
    Miyahira sensei was one of Chibana's senior students before starting his own association after Chibana's passing. We trained under his lineage for ten years. I got train with him once back in '96 when he came to the U.S. He was 92.

    Very sad news Tony. My condolences to his family, students and friends. He really cast a wide shadow in the world of Okinawan Karate, and his legacy will live on in the many students he trained.
