Dear Branch Chiefs and Contacts,

First of all, I would like to start my message by expressing my appreciation to all of you for your warm support for our organization.


For next year, I hope to further increase such activities in various countries around the world, and promote the founding of the international federation to unite the competition.
We only have a few weeks left in 2015, an active year highlighted by activities for the inclusion of Full Contact Karate in the Olympic Games, and the further development of the international united front for Full Contact Karate, symbolized by the cooperation with KWU (Kyokushin World Union). While actively taking part in year-end events, I remember the various events from this year, and with your smiles in mind, I renew my sense of appreciation, and look forward to the great developments that await us next year.
I would like to thank all of you for your kind care and support this year. I sincerely hope that 2016 will be a wonderful year for all of us, full of hope, happiness, and great health. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Kenji Midori
WKO President
