Shihan Akira Sato

Here is our beautiful new Satokai logo.

The outside design comes from part of Sensei Sato’s family crest, or kamon.

The Japanese characters around the bottom translate as: Sato-Ha Shito-Ryu International Federation.

The middle character is Do, “way” or “path”, as in Karate-do. It was beautifully executed by Misaki Narutaki, a professional Shodo calligrapher in Japan, who lived here for a few years and was friends with many at Hombu Dojo.  Congratulations for a job well done!
