This past March our dojo celebrated 40 years of training in Oakland, CA. By all accounts the Oakland dojo was one of the first in California and is one of the longest running dojos in the bay area.
We had many special guest instructors who got their start or trained at some point at our dojo, including Bill Witt Shihan, Hans Goto Shihan, Hoa Newens Sensei, Pat Hendricks Sensei, and many many others who trained under Saito Sensei.
The below is a link to a special edition of our newsletter, which contains interviews with all of these instructors.
Please enjoy the cool stories and insights that they've shared.
