Photo in the “Encyclopedia of Japan,” keyword “Karate”

It is not surprising that the “Encyclopedia of Japan” has an entry for the word “Karate.” It provides a good basic overview of Karate, with photos of Rika Usami, Motobu Choki, the Japanese national Kata team, Kyan Chotoku and many others. See here: 
Admittedly though I was DELIGHTED it also has below photo of HIROSHI SENSEI and ME, probably in 2010 or 11 I’d guess.
Well deserved, I’d say! 😉
The caption says "Karate Sai (traditional Okinawan weapon) and Karate Bo (Traditional Karate Stick)." I'd say "Why you didn't ask? It is not a Karate Sai!" ;)
