TO ALL THOSE WHO REALLY LOVE KYOKUSHIN
2015-04-26

It's already 21 years since Sosai Masutatsu Oyama left us in sorrow and left Kyokushin in our hands, I mean in hands of next generation of those who supposed to carry this torch of fire, fire of Kyokushin that was kindled with His own internal blaze of desire for finding The Way of Kyokushin. He found The Way although He never got to the end of His journey, there is no end because there is no any destination of this Way. Patience and His unparalleled discipline let Him build up the bridge between goals and achievements. The same time He knew the real success is the journey not the destination, that's why He kept going and His great idea of Kyokushin kept growing. His demeanor showed us which direction we should go and how to keep moving forward in life, Sosai showed us patience and discipline are the virtues that lead us to success in the process of journey to The Kyokushin Way. The Kyokushin Way is seeking for ULTIMATE TRUTH WITHIN not without, it means we should seek for our best, honest and truthful personality.   

It is high time to make great effort and unify Kyokushin spirit all over the world!

Let's unify not under one organization but under the idea that Sosai Masutatsu Oyama always kept spreading around the world - ONE WORLD ONE KYOKUSHIN!

Sosai created real power, let's not lose it, let's not ruin His legacy with our little, shallow ambitions and let's give Sosai for His birthday the best gift - UNIFIED KYOKUSHIN!!!  

I always remember when I met Sosai for the first time, how extremely nice He was with genuinely friendly attitude towards me, and I remember His hand, so soft, warm and inviting but I felt and I knew I was shaking the hand of Great Mountain.

SHIHAN LESLAW SAMITOWSKI FROM CHICAGO, USA - RESIGNATION FROM IKO (MATSUI)
2015-04-20

Chicago, USA, April 20, 2015

I would like to submit my official resignation to Honbu from my position of Branch Chief of International Karate Organization and as a member of the Organization.

I also would like to thank for all those years of cooperation in the past.

Unfortunately stagnation of last few years in IKO in United States, lack of any activities and leadership, lack of communication for years and lack of prospects for any progress in the future, forced me to take this decision.

I will continue my Kyokushin journey looking for improvement of my skills but first of all, for enhancement of knowledge that, unfortunately I now, I will not find in IKO.

I wish the best for Kancho S. Matsui and all members of IKO.

Thank you,

OSU!

In the view of this seminar, Shihan considers coming back to take part in the Seminar on April 11 and the Summer Camp in Krakow. During the seminar, Shihan Samitowski answered many questions about the methodology, map energy flows, the interpretation of difficult concepts, self-defense etc. The seminar was highly appreciated by all senseis.
