We got on the local radio station!
Local press interest in the 100 Kata event is also building up quickly. A few days ago James Pankiewicz was invited onto FM Yomitan, the local radio station for the area where the event will be held, to talk about how the event was conceived, how interest is growing rapidly around the world and a little bit on why karate events like this have such a special appeal. The interview was held mostly in Japanese and streamed on Ustream live (that was nerve racking!) – you can check out the program here (I recommend jumping to about 10 mins in for the start of the interview).

地元記者の100型イベントへの関心も、急速に増進しています。数日前にジェームス•パンキュビッチは、イベントが行われる地元のラジオ局のFMよみたんに招待されました。どのようにイベントが考案されたか、どのように世界中へと関心が急速に広がっていったか、また、このような空手イベントがなぜそのような特別な魅力を持っているかについて少し話して来ました。インタビューは、主に日本語で開催され、ユーストリームライブ上で流れました。(とても緊張しました!) このインタビュー動画はここから確認できます。(インタビューの開始までの約10分間を、飛ばして見ることをお勧めします。)
