Giving Back to the Hombu Dojo

Several practitioners have trained under Hanshi Sid Campbell and attained high ranks, opened their own schools, but gained recognition elsewhere and have not returned to give anything back to the Hombu Dojo. Giving back to the Hombu Dojo is a great way and grand opportunity to say "thanks" for the years of knowledge and teaching that many of us have received and continue to benefit from. On Saturday, 7/26/2008, Kyoshi Rayford, Sensei Richard Cantu, and Sensei Amy Lynn traveled from Merced to the Hombu Dojo in Oakland to give something back to Hanshi Sid Campbell and his current Hombu Dojo students.
