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.
