Message from WKO President ( February 2020 )

Dear Branch Chiefs and Contacts,

Time flies quickly, and it is already 1 month into the year. In Japan, we are still in the cold winter, but we also feel the warm welcome being prepared for the Olympics in the summer. Although the competition and event may be different, the scenes in various media, of the athletes doing their best to prepare for the world’s highest stage, touch my heart very much. I sincerely wish for them to leave no regrets in their preparation, and challenge for their dream in their best condition. As for our Full Contact Karate, with the holding of the 1st World Fullcontact Karate Championship on May 30-31, we would like to widely promote to the world, the presence and world standard of the competition, and the great performance of the competitors.
