Shihan Okazaki Hiroto – the new Kancho of Kyokushin-kan

Dear International Committee Members, branch chiefs, and Instructors!

20 years have passed since the last establishment of Kyokushin-kan. I am 74 years old already.

My successor, Shihan Okazaki Hiroto, used to work at school as a civil servant. But now he’s retired and he is able to take over the duties of the Kancho of Kyokushin-kan.

Taking All Japan Championships, which will be held on 2022 April 17th, as an opportunity, we have decided to put in a new system, where Okazaki Hiroto is a new Kancho and Koyama Akio is a Director of International Affairs and General Manager.

We would like to report that the new leadership will take on further development.

I will support them as the Chairman (KAICHO) of the Kyokushin-kan and continue teaching and self-improvement in Japan and overseas.
We’re looking forward to your continuing support and guidance. Thank you.

Kyokushin-Kan International
Kancho Hatsuo Royama
