Message from WKO President (February & March 2018)

Dear Branch Chiefs and Contacts,
Thank you for your efforts to further develop and spread Budo Karate.
This is the first message for 2018, and I hope that all of us will have a great year. In Japan, we are in the middle of a cold winter. The media provides us with daily news of the Winter Olympics being held in PyeongChang, South Korea. I wish all of the participants the best in their performance at the event. While receiving courage and strength from the participants, the recent cold weather makes me look forward to the coming of spring. I hope all of you are doing well in your country and region.
