2017 USA Shito-Kai Gashuku
Gaithersburg, Maryland
May 25-28

The USA Shito-Kai extends it's thanks and appreciation to Sensei Frank Pugarita, his dojo members, staff, and parents for hosting the 2017 USA Shito-Kai Gashuku featuring World Shitoryu Karatedo Federation Pan-American President Shoko Sato. As we have come to expect from Sensei Pugarita; the event ran flawlessly and with great attention to detail this event is a memorable one.

Shoko Sato was pleased with the level of performance from youth players and senior members - especially in the area of Kata. Examinations, which were conducted on Sunday May 28th were successful.

It is noteworthy to mention the spirit, courtesy, and discipline of the Pugarita Dojo members. Their actions speak volumes about the tenor of their dojo and the mutual respect they have for each other...and their guests.

On behalf of the USA Shito-Kai please accept our warmest thanks and praise!

Jeff Bedard
Secretary General
