Over a century ago, in the small village of Chan, on a small island in the south pacific, a boy was born. One day he would become a Karate Master whose art would reach beyond the shores of Okinawa and spread across the globe. On Thursday, September 18th, the Penn State Karate Club will celebrate the birth of Tatsuo Shimabuku (9/19/1908) with a special presentation of Isshin Ryu Karate and an introduction to Okinawa, the birthplace of Karate. This Embu Taikai (martial arts demonstration) will begin at 8PM in 106 White Building on Thursday the 18th. Admission is free.
