I received this from my dear friend, USMC _Col Drew Doolin
Please find the link to a 4 minute video a friend of mine edited that
encapsulates the entire day (15 June) when we deactivated the Marine
Wing Support Group (after 59 years) that I have commanded over the past
year. Awesome day, with 7 former Commanders returning for the ceremony,
to include the oldest gent (91 years old). We went out in style. Hope
you enjoy it.


Looking good_ Drew :)

Many thanks for your service to our country Drew. It is indeed an honor to know you and be associated with you through our mutual study and practice of Uechi-ryu.

Hello All,

Been a long time...

I posted a video on YT at


It's just a look-around at the Nagahama Dojo, with Sumako's koto music backing the "tour". I made this in 2010; the reference to the photos having been taken "about 2 years ago" means they were taken in 2008.

Toward the end there is photo lineup of a few of my Dan students, and a wood slab with the kanji "BU" on it, written for my dojo by Hokama Sensei (GojuRyu master, owner of the Karate Museum). Just above the calligraphy is -- Drew Doolin, Shodan. I am honored to have him as my student and lifetime member of the Zankyokai. Toyama Sensei was always happy when he saw "Mayjah" (Colonel Doolin was Major Doolin then)! Sensei would be so proud of him today.

Semper Fi, Marine.
