ISSHINRYU HALL OF FAME
In July, Senseis Charlie Murray and Ashleigh Sturgeon had the opportunity to attend the Isshinryu Hall of Fame (IHOF) in Gatlinburg, TN. The IHOF is an annual event where Isshinryu instructors gather to recognize the vision of Master Tatsuo Shimabuku’s vision for the martial arts together. There is usually a formal dinner, an awards ceremony to recognize inductees to the Hall of Fame, and a Tournament of the Year. Sensei Murray plans to take a group from the dojo to the event next year to compete.
