Black Belt 9th Dan/Degree – KARATE
Soke Akira Sato started studying Karate in 1962. A few years later he became a member of Suzuki sensei’s dojo and practiced there for many years. In 1970 he traveled to Canada to study English at a college and continued to practice karate on his own. Other students saw him practicing by himself on the grass at the college and asked him to become their teacher. Instead of returning to Japan after one-year study, he stayed in Canada and has since then devoted all his energies to develop Shito Ryu karate in Canada and all over the world. In 2017 Sato sensei formed his own organization and adopted the name Sato-Ha Shito-ryu Kokusai Rengo (International Federation) with affiliations in over 25 countries. In Canada the organization is known as Shitoryu Satokai Canada.
