    A little help for the proud new owner. The slogan at the top is VERY different than most yosegaki flags!! Not just that it reads from left to right .....



    1. 良武館 Ryobukan
    2. 小西康裕 Konishi Yasuhiro
    3. 祝入営 celebrating entering military duty
    4. 上松繁雄君 Uematsu Shigeo kun
    6. 柔道 Judo
    7. 剣士 Kenshi [Swordsman/men, fencer]

    and the unusual slogan:

    5. 一的平世界
    Itteki Hei Seikai -- One World in Harmony [or "One Peaceful World"]
    Very different from the usual nationalistic slogans of the time

    Regarding #6 & 7, I suspect there was a "judo" side and a "kendo" side of the flag for the dojo club members to sign. The Ryobukan conducted classes in Judo, Kendo, Jujutsu, and karate. Either that, or someone identified himself as a judo member and another as a fencer.

    [EDIT: I initially reversed two kanji ... but fixed it to 一的平世界. I THINK it reads this way (Itteki HeiSeikai.)]

    You very lucky fellah!!!!!!

    more about Konishi sensei
    Question:

    Have you ever heard of Konishi Yasuhiro?

    I bet you haven’t.

    (If you have: Congratulations! You have now earned official Karate Nerd™ bragging rights for a full 1,5 minutes in your next Karate class!)

    Konishi Yasuhiro (1893-1983), perhaps the most successful leading pioneer of Karate from the Japanese mainland, was by far one of the most important figures in contemporary Karate history.

    No joke.

    It is safe to say this: Not only was he one of the driving forces behind getting Karate accepted in Japan as a “new” martial art from rural Okinawa, but he was also one of the main sponsors for Karate legends like Mabuni Kenwa (founder of Shito-ryu), Miyagi Chojun (founder of Goju-ryu), Funakoshi Gichin (founder of Shotokan), Motobu Choki (notorious Karate street-fighting expert and founder of Motobu-ryu), Ohtsuka Hironori (founder of Wado-ryu) and Taira Shinken (the grandfather of Ryukyu Kobudo) – even hosting these masters in his house, arranging for meetings/training camps, paying for trips and food – among other things.

    I think #5 it's very possible "一劍平世界"(conquer the world with one sword),since there is "剣士"and"柔道","良武館".

    Thanks Bangbangsan -- You are correct. I looked at the kanji again and now see the kanji. I've seen the calligraphy ken/sword written in that brief "broken" style before, but just missed it this time.

    一剣平世界
