There are many stories about the beginnings of Karate-do Shotokan in South America.
There are several versions that speak of those beginnings, according to records of the Uruguayan Federation of Karate (FUK) and practitioners of the time, they say that Hidetaka Nishiyama Sensei in order to expand the Shotokan style, sends South America to Michihisa Itaya sensei as Head Instructor and her assistants Yoshinori Takada Sensei and Mitsuo Inoue Sensei.
Michihisa Itaya Sensei brilliantly performs his work and achieves a large number of followers in Argentina and Uruguay.
In an accident, unfortunately dies, occupying his place Mitsuo Inoue Sensei.
Here I share a historical memory with the three sensei together performing a kanku-dai.
Historico recuerdo sensei Itaya, sensei Inoue y Sensei Takada realizando kanku dai!
