The British Columbia Shitoryu Satokai Canada
Pan-American President and Chief Instructor:
Shihan Akira Sato, 8th Dan

BC Members,

On behalf of Sensei Sato, I have the following message.

Many of you know, Sensei Sato has been trying on our behalf to create a broader more democratic, modern, karate perspective within our former affiliation, but these attempts have not come to fruition. He, over many years, has worked tirelessly to build an international organization.

Our new organization will henceforth, as of March 1, 2017, be known as Shitoryu Satokai.

Welcome karateka to an enlightened future with Soke Akira Sato, Shitoryu Satokai.
