Your host for Ohana 2016, Sr. Professor Herb LaGue, having an adaptive and progressive mind set in the world of martial arts, has openly embraced and implemented the ground breaking inclusion of a national level Sports JuJitsu Tournament at this years event. This proposal was introduced by Professor Richard Bunch President of JuJitsu America whom will be hosting Ohana in 2018. On Feburary 19th of this year a Sport JuJitsu Summit meeting in Sparks Nevada was held. Many of you receiving this email were in attendance. At that time, after deep contemplative and constructive discussions, it was unanimously determined and agreed that the FIRST BIANNUAL OHANA SPORTS JUJITSU NATIONAL TOURNAMENT will take place in 2016 at the NUGGET RESORT in SPARKS NEVADA on JUNE 19th commencing directly after 9:00AM PST FORMAL BOW IN. THE FINAL DATE OF TOURNAMENT REGISTRATION IS JUNE 18th, 2016 at 5:00PM PST. WEIGH IN BEGINS AT 8:00AM PST SUNDAY JUNE 19th, 2016.
The entire Bushidokan International Federation community are fully engaged in learning, becoming certified judges and training in Sports JuJitsu in order to ensure a successful event. Many attended the judging certification clinic in San Bruno Ca at Coach Willy Cahill’s dojo and we are having a competition training clinic combined with judges certification training and practice the first weekend in June at the Sparks Bushidokan Temple. This is being conducted by Professor Bunch.
The Bushidokan Federation and Ohana 2016 organizers are grateful to have the vast experience and necessary equipment required in the hands of Coach Cahill and Professor Richard Bunch as well as all of you receiving this email. We are confident that with your support and leadership that this tournament will be an EPIC event. Senior Professor Herb Lague has ordered that a special one of a kind custom set of 300 collector grade award medals be created to commemorate OUR Ohana 2016 Tournaments and Event.
THE SUCCESS OF THE SPORT JUJITSU TOURNAMENT PRIMARILY DEPENDS ON THE NATIONAL SPORT JUJITSU COMMUNITY AT LARGE. The Bushidokan International Federation and the Ohana 2016 administrators do not have access to your infrastructures. Therefore the communication must come from key members and figureheads in the Sport JuJitsu community. I take full responsibility for not having the foresight to bridge this gap sooner. I have comprised a simple list of action items that those interested in participating can follow in order to feel comfortable registering and attending. PLEASE utilize your leadership positions to construct an email containing the following steps listed below and send them out as soon as possible. Please also keep in mind the confidentiality clause at the end of my email. Only the steps listed below combined with event details are intended to be shared. The information regarding tournament award medals may assist with the decision to attend.

Additional focus emails will follow.
