The above link describes something that seems to have escaped me, until now. It's a documentary starring the Legendary Fumio Demura, which highlights his last dojo.

His last dojo was once located on Bristol Avenue in Santa Ana, CA; a victim of progress, a companion of modernation, and a acceptance of change was placed on the chopping block for a forward-looking city. Not only was Demura Sensei dojo chosen, but so were several other businesses facing an end.

Nowadays, that which once sat there, is now no more than a fenced in empty lot that's gave way to weeds and the like. The good news is that their Hombu is still in existence, just in a different location is in same said city.

I had not heard of this. I'll have to view it when I get the chance.

It is a great documentary. Fumio Demura Sensei dedicated his life to karate and that Dojo.
