Because of the restrictions in place to prevent spreading the COVID-19 disease, the OKINAWAN KARATE DO UNION (OKU) will not hold its annual, summer seminar in July 2020.   We plan to hold the seminar in September or October 2020, health restrictions permitting.  We will announce seminar details on this website and in our monthly newsletters, as our plans develop.

These annual July seminars were initiated by Grand Master Allen Wheeler over 30 years ago.  The OKU is proud to continue these seminars in the same tradition and spirit as Master Wheeler intended.
