The London Olympic are over. I hope you all have returned to your normal peaceful everyday life and are pursuing karate practice in your own countries. Four months have passed since the passing away of Soke Takayoshi Nagamine, “the strongest leader and the greatest advertisement symbol of the WMKA”.
To preserve and continue his honor and legacy, I will do my best to run the WMKA which was created by both 1st Soke Shoshin Nagamine and 2nd Soke Takayoshi Nagamine. I will first resume the paper work I have been holding since Soke’s passing away in April 25, 2012. Please submit your necessary request such shown below.
