2015-09-28

TIME TO BE UNITED - TIME FOR UNIFICATION
3-4 October 2015 in Khabarovsk the second unification Kyokushin World Championships were organized by Kyokushin World Union. In the event, taken under the banner TIME TO BE UNITED, 255 participants from 46 countries represented the five largest organizations in the Kyokushin world: KKI - shihan Royama, IFK - shihan Arneil, KWF - shihan Hollander , AKR - Shihan Trutnev and WKO - shihan Midorii, who invited 12 fighters from each of the organizations to participate in the World Cup in Tokyo in November 2015. The above-mentioned organizations are ready to cooperate in order to enter the Olympic Games. Shihan Matsui in talks with shihan Trutniev did not rule out the idea of cooperating with the other organizations to reach our aim i.e. enter the Olympics. The first emphatic gesture was when the IKO invited shihan Tanaka's clubs (KWF) and other organizations to participate in competitions for children. Today everyone already knows that none of the world organization unites more than 10-15% of practitioners, so to achieve a long-term objective cooperation is needed and inclusion of smaller Kyokushin organization in the second stage.
