An issue of "Budo Dojo" from the early 90s featured an article by Lindsay Sensei on Hakatsuru. Its the only aricle by him, concerning him, or mentioning him that I've come across. Thought you might be interested; back issues can be ordered.

I've see it Al. Thanks for the heads-up, bruh'.

It's so funny to read modern periodicals (BB Mag. for example) and see mediocre (at best) karate-ka like George Alexander have an article explaining the Okinawan karate principle of "continuous fist fighting", yet none of these mags seeks out the sources for Alexander's and Dillman's info. They don't delve into the guys credibility. They just take what he says or submits to them at face knowledge, yet scrutinize a person if they write in complaining about the lack of real MAs covered in their mag..

Instead they want to talk about things that generate money and sensationalisim, like MMAs, which has nothing at all to do with art and more with quick-fix, sado-masochistic butt hugging, or kickboxing/Muay Thai, which is a ring sport loosely based on real self-preservation.

If you ever want to know about real Shorin Ryu, or maybe I should say Orthodox Shorin, all you need to do is ask folks like James Coffman, Ed Gingras, Ron Lindsey, Greg Ohl, Dr. Charles Tatum, Tony Sandoval as well as a very few others I can't remember right now. I'm sure Yuichi Kuda's son, Nishihira, Akamine and others are also top echelon, but they aren't in this hemisphere so it would be hard to ask them.

Who are all these juorneyman and scheisters representing Okinawan karate in these magazines? There will be a day when folks get to witness the karate they were always looking for, but it'll take the next generation of sensei to present it to this superficial, violence loving world.

If you want the karate you do to reflect the original intent of the Shuri Te master Sokon Mastumura, you need to get as close to the source as possible. Just my opinion based on fact. [IMG][/IMG]

I hear you!

BB Mag is in the buisiness of making money; they do so by appealing to as wide of a traget market as possible. They want the magazine to catch the eye and be picked up off the shelf. So they feature articles that will mostly appeal to the would-be tough guys out there. When an article on karate is featured, it typically focuses on sport, or is a psuedo-scholastic "research" article from a questionable source. Take the latest "Karate Jutsu" article for example.
Oh well, at least quality MA periodicls do exist.

Would anyone know of any reputable Shorin-Ryu Matsumura Seito dojo/sensei in Massachusetts? or perhaps Northeast US?

Thank-You in advance.

The closest I know to the Seito lineage might be Greg Lazarus around Seabrook NH. He's a student of Kise Sensei.

I go where the real is. I trained in a real good system in the Philippines, Shorin Ryu Shorinkan under Ulysses Aquino, and it took me thirteen years to find a good teacher in the USA. I travel 2 hours to train with him, usually twice a month for about 7 hours per session, usually privates. It's worth it. This style of karate is gonna die if good folks don't perpetuate it. I love how our kata look. There are so many nuances left out just in the performiance of Naihanchi kata in other styles. We kept all those little subtleties and emphasize proper structure (Structural qi), balance and a lot of 45 degree angles. Mlultiversed

I trained under him also;

There are a few Matsumura Seito sensei here in the U.S. besides myself in Maryland. All you have to do is search a little bit. My lineage is through Akamine Yoshimatsu sensei in Okinawa.
