Introducing the 3rd Soke:
My name is Tsukasa Mabuni. My grandfather is Kenwa Mabuni, the
founder of Shito-Ryu. My father, Kenzo Mabuni, succeeded as the
2nd Soke of Shito-Ryu when my grandfather passed away in 1952.
Continuing with Budo tradition, I have succeeded the role of
3rd Soke of Shito-Ryu, upon the recent passing of my father.
The organization of Shito-Ryu International Karate Do Kai will
continue on with the same objectives. I urge all Shito-Ryu
Karate-ka worldwide to support the organization which my
grandfather founded. The same organization which my father
developed as an international entity teaching Seito, or
I met many of you at the 2005 Shito-Ryu International
Championships in Osaka in July 2005. I look forward to meeting
you all again, and meeting those I did not see this year,
sometime soon in the future.
