SMOKA 1963

Grand Master Soken continues to visit Kadena Karate Dojo on a regular basis and is impressed with the work ethics of the students and offers his encouragement and instruction. (Remember that Sensei Coffman could speak a mixture of Japanese and Okinawan Hogan enough to carry on a general conversation).

Sensei Coffman is promoted to San-Dan.

Other Americans get exposed to Grand Master Hohan Soken.
