I’ve been eagerly following a series of postings by Garry Lever on the Okinawa Goju Ryu UK blog. The “Searching for the Truth” series follows his second trip to Okinawa, in which he trained with karate practitioner, historian, and author Hokama Tetsuhiro in an effort to find answers about the art that eluded him on his 2003 trip. It’s nice to see a bit of the Pioneer spirit in an age where the internet has made everyone an armchair black belt or Shaolin monk.

Take a look at the first part of the series here.
