Administrative Announcements

IOGKF had a successful year.  We welcomed new members from Norway, Paraguay and Tajikistan.

 Throughout 2013 there were numerous opportunities provided around the world for our members to learn new techniques and to improve on their Okinawan Goju-Ryu knowledge and skills, to meet other karateka.

The quality of teaching our masters and senior instructors provide is what makes IOGKF great and each member should strive to take advantage of this.  To help you make your plans for next year the gasshuku scheduled for both Higaonna Sensei and Nakamura Sensei are listed under the Events section of the IOGKF website. There are also many other events being offered around the world with other senior instructors. The information for these events is added to the site when the information becomes available; so don’t forget to check the Events site on a regular basis for updates.

Remember, these events are for you! They are offered to help preserve  traditional Okinawan Goju-Ryu. These events are also a great way to forge new relationships.  The fostering of friendships between members of different countries is major part of what makes IOGKF a great organization.
