Message from WKO President ( April & May 2017 )

Dear Branch Chiefs and Contacts,
It is spring time in Japan, the weather is nice, and the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. It is the start of a new school year, and it is heartwarming to see the energetic children walking on the street, full of hopes and dreams. I hope that everyone is enjoying spring in their country/region. We are Karateka. Let us continue to wear our dogi, train hard with strong Kiai, and pursue the ultimate truth as Karateka.
