Masao Kagawa Shihan's Message

The translation of the speech:

Dear JKS members,

I hope everyone in our large JKS family is healthy and fine.
In Japan, the COVID-19 pandemic situation is now gradually heading down to its end, but what about the situation in your own country?
I am praying for our member’s good health.
I think you all, little by little, are doing your best to go back to regular training.
The Japanese Government finally called off the state of emergency, and we reopened the Honbu-Dojo on June 1st.
Besides its regular activity, the JKS Headquarters went online, and now we are thinking about various projects to be implemented in the nearest future.
I believe that the close work of the Honbu-Dojo and JKS members around the Globe brings love and devotion to JKS Karate-do. Please, do keep training with all of your passion.
We hope to meet you and train together as soon as possible.
An essential issue among our plans is the International Seminar 2020. We understand that the situation is quite complicated. We will keep you up to date and inform when it becomes possible to conduct the event.
Until then, please be fine.
We look forward to seeing you again.

Yours sincerely,

Masao Kagawa
The Japan Karate Shoto Federation Chief Instructor

The JKS Headquarters

Regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic

Although the Japanese Government called off the state of emergency on May 25th, and we are gradually returning to normal life, we are still in a state of uncertainty. Many of the JKS branches have restarted their training, and I would like each of you to continue to carry out your activities while maximizing the infection prevention measures. Most of the events planned by JKS have been postponed or canceled, and we still have some undecided future events. We will update you as soon as the situation is clear. Under these circumstances, online instruction has become essential. Due to the pandemic, the travel of the JKS Headquarters Instructors to other JKS branches in Japan or Worldwide become extremely difficult. By conducting online classes, the traveling risk is eliminated, and the opportunity to attend seminars become possible to everyone. And I am pleased that we have received many requests for online training sessions from our overseas branches. I would strongly recommend all our JKS members to participate in the online classes in order to upgrade their Karate skills. We will continue to encourage new participants and pursue new teaching possibilities.

Yours sincerely,

Takeshi Moriya
The Japan Karate Shoto Federation President
