A great weekend at the Canadian Chito-Ryu Association AGM in Toronto on November 3 - 5, 2017.
It was an extra special event with Sensei Higashi being awarded hi...s 10th dan and the formal creation of the World Chito-Ryu Federation of which he is the Supreme Instructor.
The weekend included lots of clinics and fun times with Chito-Ryu karate-ka from across Canada with special guests from World Chito-Ryu members from Norway and Japan.
From l-r, Sensei Chris Golz, Sensei Higashi, Sensei Randall MacLean, Sensei Aaron Wright, and Sensei Andrew Swiber.

This is the photograph taken on August 18, 1955.
The left-hand side is Sensei Gichin Fnakoshi of Shoto-Kan.
And right-hand side is Sensei Tsuyoshi Chitose of ...the founder of Chito-Ryu.
Two teachers' exchange was intimate, and Sensei Chitose was often teaching at the time of Shoto-Kan foundation.
There are some persons who are the founder of each style in the exercise students at that time.
This is one of the precious data in which old-time teachers' friendship is illustrated.
