<Address by new president>
To members of Uechi-Ryu Karate-Do Association and all of Uechi -Ryu Karate -Do family in the world.

It has been 4 years since the new organisation was established. I believe the organisation has became firm year by year. It was proved by many efforts of members in such as seminars, grading test, tournament and so on.
What I would like to do as president now is to inclease Uechi -Ryu members all over world. I would like to ask many my friends, whom I have met for my past 45 years, to get together. Especially I am expecting new members to join us from South America and Europe who have been long time friends of mine.

Our organisation is concentlating the concept of Soft &Flexible and Muscular &Hardness. I intend to develop the organisation 3 years by 3 seasons. It means the first 3 years will be a new start to me, next 3 years will be a progressing stage and a final 3 years will be my conclusion season. It may sound abstract, but I will make it concrete. I would appreciate it if you would cooperate with me for my goal.

Before closing my address, I would like to express how I feel sorry about big loss of Jack Summers Sensei in the United States. He was very special and must be remembered as the man of merit for the development of Uechi Ryu Karate Do in the United States. Please accept my deepest sympathy. May his soul rest in peace.
