“It’s a great honor for me to receive this award. I want to say “Thank you” to the organizers. This place has become my second home, there’s so much positive energy here”, Kancho Hatsuo Royama stated. Royama is the president of Kyokushin-kan International Organization Honbu and he’s an IX dan Kyokushin-kan Karate. He’s also a co-chairman of KWU.
