Hi, what are you looking for?


Happy Birthday, Hanshi Steve Arneil

Dear Hanshi Steve Arneil,


It gives us great pleasure on behalf of all in Kyokushin World Union to convey greetings to you on your Birthday.

As the very first and permanent leader of the International Federation of Karate (Kyokushin),  you have made many important contributions to the development and popularization of our sport – Kyokushin. Your lifetime experience and knowledge that you have learned directly from Sosai Masutatsu Oyama are a unique legacy for all of us.

We wish you sound health, high spirits, may your family and loved ones always surround you with their warmth and care.

With endless respect and gratitude,
