Message from IOGKF Publications Editor
Thank you! For everyone who has really supported me on this newsletter and in particular this magazine! This edition has been like doing two in one; usually we aim to produce a 26 page magazine, but we’ve had so much support from around the world I am please to present you with a 42 page Monster Edition! I especially want to thank Ciara McGrath from England (EGKA) for all her help on the online newsletter and to Nakamura Sensei for guiding the whole process. Please keep sending you articles and reports through for the newsletter. I also encourage you to send any ideas you may have for uss this can often lead to reality. Sensei Jakob Kold from Denmark suggested that maybe we should make a magazine in Higaonna Dojo last year and now we have a 42 page high quality book, that martial artist from across the globe are now reading and getting involved in!
Next year there are many major Gasshuku’s across the world and I encourage everyone to do their best to attend as many events as possible to strength relationships and form new ones within the IOGKF family. Chile, South Africa are both hosting large scale events with Higaonna Sensei that will not disappoint and I personally am really looking forward to coming to Scotland for the European Gasshuku in 2014. If you ideas or article for me I am always happy to discuss them in person at Gasshuku’s or via email, no matter how big or small!
April ‘s magazine will see many more new articles included, along with Okinawan feature pieces. I want to wish all of our members the very best for Christmas and a safe, happy and healthy 2014!
