To all World Matsubayashi-ryu Karate-do Association Members

Announcement of New Executive Members of Okinawa Headquarters

Dear all WMKA members,

I am sure all members are healthy and pursuing karate practice in your own countries.

We all remember as if it was just yesterday that the 2nd Soke Takayoshi Nagamone’s Unbelievable Passing Away on April 25,2012. He was about to leave for Norway and Germany on May 7th, Canada and USA in July and Ireland in August. Soke Nagamine enthusiastically talked and was actively working for World Karate-do Seminar in Okinawa starting from November 3, 2013. We are still shocked and hardly believe of Soke’s sudden passing away.

We discussed within all board member meeting what the best way to succeed and preserve the Matsubayashi-ryu Karate-do for future generation. We unanimously decided to adapt Association President System instead of Soke System on General
Conference on June 9,2012. The new executive Members such as President ,Vice president ,Chairman of board…etc. will be listed on this letter.

I think it is our obligation to 1st Soke Shoshin Nagamine and 2nd Soke Takayoshi Nagamine to Discipline 18 Kata and 7 Yakusoku Kumite Correctly together with Spiritual Essence of Matsubayashi-ryu Karate-do and pass down to younger generation. Under the present difficult situation, I ask you all World Matsubayashi-ryu Karate-do members to stand up together and cooperate to overcome many problems ahead and proceed to bright future of WMKA and EMKA.

The new executive members are as follow.
1. President : Yoshitaka Taira ( Hanshi 10th –Dan)
2. Vice President : Toshimitsu Arakaki (Hanshi 10th _ Dan)
3. Chairman of Board : Iwao Tome (Hanshi 9th _ Dan)
