From Howard High, Chairman, International Yudanshakai Executive Council

Attention JKR USA Members!

In USA, 38 kids die every week because of cancer. This is unacceptable. I am compelled to do something. Previously, I ran in races for saving kids with cancer. However, my knees no longer can handle the punishment of running. Therefore, I started a JKR USA Bicycle Team to fight for Kids against cancer. If you have a bicycle, please join the team and together we can fight the righteous fight against cancer! Please join the team. But if you do not have a bicycle, please donate to our cause. Thank you!

It is with sadness that the members of Japan Karate Do Ryobu-Kai announce that Soke Yasuhiro Konish, 10th dan, Shindo Jinen Ryu, passed away in the early morning hours of April 9th.

The Konishi family held a private funeral in Japan, and Soke Konishi’s remains have been cremated.

Soke Konishi was a generous and deeply knowledgeable instructor, who made it his life’s work to grow Japan Karate Do Ryobu-Kai and foster training in the style of karate his father created.

Mrs. Konishi understands that the JKR family, as well as other members of the martial arts community, may wish to express their condolences or send gifts or flowers. She requests, however that you do not do so at this time.

If you would like to convey your sympathies, please send a card to the JKR USA Hombu dojo, and Kaicho Yamazaki will present them to the Konishi family in July, when he visits Japan.

You may send cards to:

Japan Karate Do Ryobu-Kai
12800 Garden Grove Blvd, Suite J
Garden Grove, California, CA 92843

Thank you,

Sensei Kiyoshi Yamazaki has been elevated to the position of Kaicho, or President. In this position, Sensei Yamazaki is responsible for leadership of all JKR schools throughout the world and the continued development of the organization. It is extremely rare for a someone based outside of Japan to be promoted to such a position. Congratulations, Sensei Yamazaki!

Are you an average person? If you already earned a black belt, you're not. If you haven't attained the black belt level yet, strive for the highest standards of excellence -- then you will not be an average person. And then you will earn you black belt.

We found out that the Epicenter is closed upon arrival. I guess it was miscommunication between the staff there and us. The facility will not be open for us until 2 January. So out next class will be on Tuesday, 3 January 2017. See you next year!
