I now had no choice but to go back to Hawai’i and start looking, finding and talking to all those about The Art Of Lua.
Jerry Walker and his family, on vacation, came to Orange County, California and wanted to talk Lua.
Jerry Walker mentioned his Lua Kumu, 'Õlohe Charles Kenn, a Judo, Jujitsu, and Lua practitioner, Professor Henry Seishiro Okazaki (1890-1951) Grandmaster of Danzan Ryu Jujitsu.
1924 - Danzan Ryu Jujitsu of the KoDenKan System was introduced to the Territory of Hawai’i.
The Kapu (Forbidden Law) was handed down first to my Tutu Kãne and Tutu Wahine, then down to my Makua Kãne and Makuahine, and then down to me. I now find out Professor Henry Okazaki learned his Kui-A-Lua from a Hawai'ian gentleman from Puna, Hilo, Hawai’i (1917-1920).
Now, Professor Henry Okazaki is teaching Lua to Hawai'ians as well as non-Hawai'ians.
All this negativity and blast of words I received from my own race about our “Ancient Martial Art Lua” got to me, hurt me and made me realize what a shame it was for my Parents to go through the same things for all those years.
Papa said, "Kolomona, go slow and watch your step. Watch those who are nice to you. Watch many who give you one and then ask for many. There are many to whom you give and with whome you share and it is they who turn away."
