 1. Message from WKO President

Dear Branch Chiefs and Contacts,

First of all, I would like to start my message, by expressing my appreciation to all of you for your dedication and hard work for our organization.
It is already December, and I assume it is a busy time of the year for all of you. In Japan, the “Kanji of the Year” is announced every year in December. The Kanji (One ChineseCharacter) that is chosen for each year, symbolizes the characteristic of that specific year. “Bond” (Kizuna) was chosen to be the Kanji for this year. I believe that this reflects the situation inJapan after the earthquake in Eastern Japan, the recovery work, and what was noticed by everyone after the loss of many things due to the disaster.
As for the WKO, our year is symbolized by the success of the World Championship. Our friends from around the world gathered for this event, exchanging smiles and greetings, and the competitors showed their technique and strong spirit, which they had polished in preparation for the event, in order to compete for the honor of the world title. I believe that this was a dream moment for us Karate-kas.
Looking back at this year, Japan was exposed to various risks after the earthquake, and information about our situation was sent to the world through the media. There were indeed doubts of whether we would be able to hold the World Championship, but in the end, we wereable to see that such worries were groundless. The World Championship was a great success,thanks to all of you who visited Japan for this event, and we were able to realize the strongestand largest World Championship.
This was definitely a year where we were able to reconfirm the “bond” (Kizuna) between us, which I appreciate very much.
So let us continue our work for the further development of our WKO, and while maintaining the strong bond between us, let us make our organization eternal. We do not have much time to rest, for we need to set sail towards our next goal, the Karate World Cup in 2013. The official date of this tournament is now finalized, and will be held on April 13th-14th, 2013. A busy preparation period is awaiting the Lithuanian Branch, the host country of this event, and I wish them the best in their work. At the same time, I would also like to ask for the cooperation from all of our Branches, which will play an important role in making the event a great success.
Lastly, a Karate-ka must be a good member of society, as well as a caring member of his/her family. Therefore, it is very important for you to take care of your health, which will always be the cornerstone of your daily lives. Please cherish the bond between your family members, take good care of yourself, and let us continue our work next year.
This year will soon end, and I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all of you and the strong bond that I can feel between us, and I would like to end this last greeting of the year by extending my deepest appreciation to the founder of kyokushin Karate, Sosai Oyama.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

Kenji Midori

1.   Message from WKO President Shihan Kenji Midori - July 2010

Dear Branch Chiefs and Contacts,
I am so grateful and honored to see the unity demonstrated by all of you, which will continue to be vital for the further development of WKO. With the coming of July, we will be having numerous Summer Camps held throughout Europe. We have received many invitations for Japanese instructors, and many of them will be participating in these camps. On behalf of all the instructors, I would like express to you, of how honored we are to be able to receive these numerous invitations. Thank you very much. Although I try my best to adjust my schedule to meet the conditions for all invitations I receive, there unfortunately are times when this is not possible, and I always feel bad when I am not able to meet your requests. I hope though that there will come a day when I will be able to visit all of you, and when that time comes, I would like for us to completely focus ourselves on Karate, which we hold dearly.
The preparation process for next year’s 10th World Championship has finally started. The schedule for the tournament will be officially decided in July, and we will send you the details as soon as we confirm the relevant information. The official hotel, seminar location and other information are also tasks that have to be taken care of. I know that the time we have left before the tournament will pass very quickly, but we will do all we can to make the preparations necessary in order to welcome you all in Japan.
Thanks to the deep understanding and cooperation by all of you, the WKO is step by step, developing into the right direction. Thank you very much. Your opinions and ideas are most valuable for our development. As I always say, democracy requires patience and perseverance. But together, we will choose the best way, will work together, will make compromises, and last but not least, we will believe in the path that we have chosen all together. This is our WKO.
As a recent development, people who share our beliefs and values have joined us in Poland and Canada, by transferring to our organization from other Kyokushin groups. As evident in this month’s Newsletter, we have received many new members, and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all to the WKO. Let us all work together to overcome the difficulties that are waiting ahead, for we are all friends who have gathered upon a common belief. We are all important friends who will stick together for the rest of our lives.
At the moment, we are very busy here in Japan with the preparations for the Dream Cup in August. 1,350 competitors will take part in this tournament. There will be many competitors from overseas branches as well, and I would like to express my respect to the overseas fighters for making this challenge. I sincerely hope this tournament will become the greatest experience for you. From next year, the Dream Cup will be open to overseas countries only every other year. This year will be the 3rd Dream Cup, and I hope that you will try to arrange tournaments similar to the Dream Cup in your own region and country. This will give all students of Karate a “Dream”, and as Branch Chiefs it is our responsibility to prepare this dream stage to our students. I will be looking forward to the further development of each region.
I would like to ask for all to reconfirm our three action plans, which is to become the strongest and largest Karate Organization in the world, to reach the number of 100 affiliated countries, and to join the Olympic Games. Let us all try our best to realize these goals.
Kenji Midori

Sad News of Shihan Tokujun Ishi's Death

No words can express the sadness we feel from the loss of Shihan Ishi, and as it is very hard to express our thoughts and feelings right now,  please read the official communication from WKO in Japan below.

"It is with great sorrow that we send you this sad news.  Only two weeks after the International Seminar, on October 30th, Ishi Shihan got sudden troubles with the circulatory organs (the main artery), and on the same day he went through an 11 hours long emergency surgery.  The doctors managed to save his life at that time, and further treatment was carried out at the Intensive Care Unit.  However on November 4th, he’s condition got worse, and he went through a second surgery.  After this second surgery, Shihan Ishi continued to struggle for his life, but other organs such as lungs and kidneys started to fail, and he also got a cerebral infarction which made his condition worse.

 Despite prayers made by President Midori and all Branch Chiefs, as well as students and many, many other people, Shihan Ishi passed away today, on November 12th at 11:17am.  He was 44 years old.

His death has come as a great shock for us, and it is still difficult to believe it. Today here in Japan, we all suffer a great grief and intense sorrow.

 On November 7th, we sent out information to the WKO Board Members about Shihan Ishi’s condition.  However, since his condition changed daily we wanted to wait with sending out information to all overseas Branch Chiefs.  We apologize for not being able to inform you earlier of the situation.

 From the bottom of our heart, we do all pray for the soul of Shihan Ishi, a person who has been given so much to our organization.


WKO Office"
