新年のご挨拶 New Year's greetings.
沖縄剛柔流空手道協会 会長 照屋幸榮
Happy New Year from Okinawa!
2018 ended successfully with the incredible support from you all.
Okinawa, the birthplace of Karate, is expected to attract even greater attention due to Karate making its first appearance in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
As many of you may already know, this year will see OGKK’s 50th anniversary, hence will be holding a special event to commemorate this momentous occasion with all of you.
With our perseverance and persistence in practicing Gojuryu Karate, let’s continue to preserve these valuable techniques and traditions, which I am confident helps the Okinawan Karate and organization constantly strive and develop.
Without you, none of this would be possible. Let’s work together and look forward to seeing what 2019 holds in store for us.
With warm regards,
Chairman of OGKK
