Message from WKO President February 2019

Dear Branch Chiefs and Contacts,

Thank you for your continuous support for the further development of WKO. Japan is in the middle of winter, and it is getting colder by the day. Time flies very fast, and 1 month has already passed in the year.
In Japan, we started the year by holding the annual Kagami Biraki training at Gokokuji Temple, where Sosai Oyama rests in peace, on January 13. We were blessed with clear blue skies and warm weather, and while sensing the presence of Sosai Oyama, we gave our best effort in the training and special demonstration attended by 200 members. Tsuki and Keri, full of Kiai. Each and every technique, symbolized our strong resolve to make this a great year, and we shared a good combination of pleasant energy and seriousness. I sincerely hope for all of us to do our best, and make this a wonderful year.
