This is a news report from Akamine Sensei's visit to Chennai India in February 2016.  Krishnamurthy Sensei arranged the seminar and Dell Hamby Sensei traveled with and assisted Akamine Sensei in his sessions.  Visits by top instructors are treated as a major event with visits from local officials and even support from the Japanese Consulate.

    I am a senior student of the late Hanshi Seikichi Odo. I am curious about the Wolrd Games in 2016. Are many Okinawan Dojo preparing for this?

    This is a good question and something I will have to look into. Okinawan Dojo are notoriously relaxed in their attitudes to pre-planning and often leave everything till the last minute. As such I haven't heard anything but will make inquiries.
