The Hawaii Karate Seinenkai Salutes:
Chojun Miyagi
1888 - 1953

Chojun Miyagi arrived in Hawaii May 3, 1934 (See Chojun Miyagi's 1934 Visit to Hawaii). His visit was sponsored by Chinyei Kinjo of the Yoen Jiho Sha, a Japanese language newspaper located in Koloa, Kauai. Miyagi remained in Hawaii for eight months, until January or February of 1935. He gave several demonstrations on Oahu and Kauai. During his demonstrations on Oahu he was assisted by members of the Hawaii Karate Seinenkai. A student of the Naha-Te master, Kanryo Higashionna, Miyagi was the founder of the Goju-Ryu form of Karate.

The Hawaii Karate Seinenkai salutes Chojun Miyagi and expresses its gratitude to him for coming to Hawaii to spread the art of Karate.
