Announcement from the IOGKF Editorial Office

By: Sensei David Lambert –

Message from IOGKF Publications Editor

I would like to thank everyone for their positive feedback on the IOGKF Magazine. So far it has been a great addition to IOGKF and I hope you will all read it, print it off and share it with your students. It is a great tool for bringing our great articles to the Dojo without needing a computer or telephone.

I travelled to America and Canada for the first time this year and I was so happy to meet many new people and receive their feedback and also was to improve the newsletter and magazine. Remember you can contact me to share your ideas and thoughts for the newsletter and the IOGKF Magazine with me. Please email:

Please be sure to check out Nakamura Sensei’s messages in this edition and also to Sensei Adrienne’s administrative announcements as they both have really important points in them for us all to understand.

I would also like to point out that IOGKF South America has started an online newsletter where articles are published in Spanish. Please check it out by visiting

Finally a huge thank you to Ciara McGrath for one again putting together the online component of our newsletter for us all! She has done a fantastic job as always and I definitely could do it without her!

Please send me your articles for our December newsletter or if you have any ideas for articles, etc please let me know.

Best Regards,

David Lambert
