OUKA New year's greeting message


Katsuji Tamayose
I hope all of you are greeting a new year. It was a busy year with 5th anniversary events of the Association and 20th anniversary celebration of Tokyo branch last year. On our 6th year, I would like to make the best effort for further development of the Association. Then I am looking at overseas, especially interested in South American countries and I think it will be great if we can visit there for seminars.When it will be happened, your cooperation will be appreciated.
I wish you a healthy year of 2016 and please encourage yourself for further improvement of Karate technique and spirit.
