Grand Master Ted Tabura, Okinawa-Te / Lima Lama owner, director and sponsor of The Festival Of The Kings, invited me to Maui, Hawai'i, to show and demonstrate my Family's Ancient Hawaiian Lua and to team up with the following Pioneers, Great Names and Grandmasters:
1989: 'Õlohe Jerry Walker, Pa Kui A Lua, was on stage announcing as I was demonstrating my Lua.
During the early 1990s 'Õlohe Jerry Walker introduced me to 'Õlohe Sam Kaha’I Kaai, a Weapon / Mea-kaua and Lua historian and expert.
My wife and I and 'Õlohe Jerry Walker were invited to visit with 'Õlohe Sam Kaha ‘I Kaai, Hale.
The Blessing I was looking for had now come to me and without any words being spoken!
This Blessing I was looking for, took many years and great effort.
It cost me Time, Hardship and Money!
Many thanks and Mahalo to:
Kolomona Kaihewalu, I have found the Blessing I needed.
