Our sincerest congratulations on your recent appointment, by
Morio Higaonna Sensei, to the position of IOGKF World Chief
been described as “a process of social influence in which
one person can enlist the support of others in the
accomplishment of a common goal(s)".
You have demonstrated an honest and transparent
understanding of who you are, what you know, what you can do
today and what accomplishments are worth defined effort and
pursuit in the future. You have rightfully earned the trust
and confidence of not only Higaoanna Sensei, but all of us
who are consistently inspired to follow you. Your personal
successes and the future of IOGKF are infinite.
Your emergent leadership, a reflection of your genuine
respect for others and the art of traditional Goju-ryu,
consistently inspires us to achieve higher goals and be the
best that we can be in all aspects and forums of our lives.
Thank you for sharing with us; the gift of who you are as a
person, your phenomenal skill and mastery - a testament to
your inherent ability and dedication to eternal training and
self-development, and may you lead all of us and IOGK to
places we only dream about - because dreams do come true!
It is with great respect, appreciation and recognition that
I have read about your appointment to chief instructor and
the restructuring of IOGKF. I wish you the best of luck with
running our organisation and also to all involved with
keeping and preserving the IOGKF and Goju Ryu karate for the
future. With this wise move by Higaonna Sensei, I feel a
great sense of security knowing, that you will do everything
to make sure it stays the best karate-organisation in the
world - as allways.
