Message from WKO President( December 2018 & January 2019 )

Dear Branch Chiefs and Contacts,
This will be the last newsletter for this year. I believe that all of you are busy everyday with year-end activities. In Japan, many people clean their dojo and house during this busy and cold period. To take part in cleaning the dojo all together, as a sign of appreciation towards the dojo for the trainings held throughout the year, and enter the new year with a clear mind. This large-scale cleaning is a Japanese tradition, and also can be seen as a part of training. To take a look back at the events of the year while cleaning the dojo. To appreciate the dojo, fellow dojo members, and the precious time spent together. With the budo mindset to have a sense of appreciation towards everything, I hope that this year will end in a good way for you.
