  • Alone, encountering Hokama Sensei has already paid the visit! A totally charismatic, and educated man, his physical fitness and karate arts are unique. We have connected the Museum of karate with a Saturday evening training together with his disciples and other 'karate pilgrims' from all possible other parts of the world. Even if the practiced techniques in at least something to do with our (Shotokan-) karate have to do, it was but a unique experience. Previously, we had more opportunity to watch the children's training, that was very interesting. The entrance to the Museum costs 300 YEN and the participation in its training of 3,000 YEN, it was worth his money. The contact works only over the phone!

  • We reached the hotel having phoned, the master Tetsuhiro Hokama was very willing to accommodate our needs. Upon our arrival was taking a lesson with students from the USA. They walked in the "Museum" and did see a part of the lesson. This is not a classical Museum but rather a mix between a gym and an old House, with photos, memorabilia, tools and explanations on the history of karate, particularly of Okinawan karate. Out of all-pervading a magical atmosphere. If you are fans of this sport, this visit is a must!! Look at the many videos on youtube of master Hokama, arguably the greatest living master and you will understand what we are talking about!!
