Isshinryu Historical Event

On June 29th 1993 the top leaders of Isshinryu Karate from the I.I.K.A. and the A.O.K.A. organizations gathered in Elkton Maryland to participate in Grand Master's Don Nagle and Harold Long transfer of Organization Leadership Authority.

The pictures below are from a poor quality video tape that I recorded on that day of the event.
