Mailing Address and Bank Account Name Change

Dear Dojo Owners around the world,

1.    Mailing address change.  The payment system of WMKA annual fees is working well because of your support and cooperation. But I want to change the mailing address of Okinawa Headquarters from me to Mr. Riki Nomura, overseas manager in Okinawa, as of today.

The reason for changing the mailing address is to increase the handling speed of the documents in Okinawa. Under the current system, after I have received all your documents, I will call Mr. Nomura to hand out everything to him. He takes the documents back to his home to study and then we meet again to discuss them. Depending on the subject, I can give my decision to him or I have to arrange a top three directors’ meeting and sometimes a full board meeting to answer you.

Although Okinawa is a small island, we still can’t meet very often. Please send all documents including checks to him starting today.  However, the checks should be addressed to me and transfer your money to my bank account as revised below. I am sure that this will save time for the handling of documents in Okinawa.

2.    Bank Account Name change. The money transfer system is also working smooth. But I want to change it because some Dojo Owners have had hard time at their bank transferring the money.  The reason was my “Bank Account Name”.  They said it was too long to fill in the squares of the bank format.

Therefore, I have changed my “Bank Account Name” as below.

(1)  Current “Bank Account Name” is “ Sekai Matsubayashiryu karatedo Renmei Kaicho Yoshitaka Taira”

(2)  Revised “Bank Account Name” is “WMKA President Yoshitaka Taira”.

 Both of the two changes are written in red letters in attached “Mailing address and Bank Account Name Change”.
(see below)

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Sincerely Yours,
President Yoshitaka Taira
World Matsubayashi-Ryu karate-Do Association
