|Higashi Sensei Celebration|
|Sensei Shane Higashi has been teaching and promoting
Chito Ryu karate for over 4 decades. From his first dojo in 1963 on Danforth
Ave. in Toronto's east end, to the Honbu Dojo at Lawrence Ave. and Victoria
Park Ave. this former Canadian champion, has taught thousands of children
and adults the art of Chito Ryu karate some of whom have gone on to become
champions and to open their own dojos in Canada and around the world.
Sensei Higashi is not only a gifted and highly respected teacher in his own dojo, but is also the Honbu-cho or head instructor for Chito Ryu karate in Canada. This means he must travel to all parts of Canada to teach and to grade karate students. Sensei Higashi has also been important in the development of Chito Ryu karate in Europe and is a regular contributor to the style in other countries where Chito Ryu is practiced.
Sensei Higashi's contribution to karate in Canada was acknowledged recently
by the Canadian National Karate Association. As a founding member of the
NKA Sensei Higashi is an important and respected figure in Canadian karate.
In October Kyoshi Higashi was inducted into the Canadian Black Belt hall
Students of Sensei Higashi know that they have been taught by one of the best there is and to show our thanks and appreciation we are holding a celebration in his honour. Please visit this site regularly for updates.
