島袋 龍夫 Tatsuo Shimabuku Embu Taikai

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 Tuesday, September 19th, 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.  Audience members will be invited to participate in some self-defense applications following the demonstration.

This Embu Taikai (martial arts demonstration) will begin at:
7:30PM in 106 White Building on Tuesday the 19th.

Remember to bring your PSU student ID, it is required to access White Building.

Happy 2017!
