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!
