Tsutomu Nakahodo Sensei, 10th Dan Hanshi Uechi Ryu, is another of the exceedingly few ...veritable Uechi karate ‘supermen’ ...but even more so...he is a fantastic caring and considerate person, especially when dealing with American/foreign students, never abusive always helpful and freely giving of his time. He is loved by all who come in contact with him.

I am very happy to report that he has been designated for the title of ‘intangible Cultural Treasure’ by the Japanese Government.

He is but a handful of Karateka to be considered for such an honor. The title resonates his lifetime dedication and service to the art of Okinawan Karate.

Monday.

The next edition of CFA magazine will include an interview of Tsutomu Nakahodo Sensei, 10th Dan Hanshi Uechi Ryu and Intangible Cultural Treasure of his nation.

Nakahodo Sensei was incredibly frank, charming, and informative during the interview which followed Friday morning training for CFA Spring Seminar (2012) members at the Okinawa Prefectural Budokan in Naha City, Japan.


My most heartfelt congratulations, Sensei, extremely well deserved. :D

I mistakenly posted what was related incorrectly on the Dragon times:

What has really happened is _ that Master Nakahodo was nominated_ rather than designated- for the title of ‘intangible Cultural Treasure’ by his nation.
