  • Unless there is a karate-related plaque or monument at a master's grave, we don't introduce it here. If you would like to visit a particular grave, ask your instructor yourself.
  • Some of the monuments listed on this site are located in family graveyards. Please be quiet and respectful when visiting. Also, when a monument is located on a private property, you need to obtain the consent of the family before visiting. Furthermore, do not offer incense sticks at the grave without the consent of your family, sit on the wall of the site to rest, or perform a demonstration.
  • Please make sure to keep the above sites or the honoring monuments clean by taking your garbage home with you. It is ideal if you can make the place cleaner than before your visit.
