COSTA MESA, Calif. - May 27, 2020 - PRLog -- Masters Hall of Fame Alumni and President Emeritus, Soke David Dye is celebrating 40 years at his dojo in Costa Mesa, California. With nearly 60 years in the
martial arts, Sensei Dye has created a lasting legacy, influencing thousands of martial artists worldwide.

Given the impact of Covid-19, the planned 40th-year celebration of Shuyokan Ryu has been difficult if not impossible. Dye's dojo has been shuttered for months, and the celebration postponed until 2021, if at all. A crisis point was reached recently with no apparent relief in sight since martial arts dojos will probably be the last businesses to re-open under California's phased openings. This has caused a group of active
and engaged members of Dye's black belts to formulate a plan to save Dye's dojo from financial ruin and closure.

A movement to "Save The Dojo" was quickly started with a GoFundMe page and outreach to the martial arts community, including the worldwide organization that Dye helped create, the Masters Hall of Fame. #savethisdojo Sensei Dye continues to work diligently to find ways to keep the traditions he established decades ago alive, according to Hanshi Daniel Hect, Masters Hall of Fame CEO and long-time friend of Dye's.

On Saturday, June 13th at 10 AM PST Kumu Michelle Manu will be at the Shuyokan dojo for a fundraiser event to conduct Facebook Live interviews of students with live demonstrations at 10 AM PST. Join Kumu Michelle at
