Más abajo adjuntamos los saludos que nuestro Dojo le envió a Nakamura Sensei con motivo de su nueva nominación y la respuesta de Sensei, agradeciendo la presencia de nuestro Dojo en la cita mundial de julio recién pasado.


Sensei Morio Higaonna,
Sensei Tetsuji Nakamura
and Members of IOGKF

I would like to express my full support, congratulations and best wishes of success to all of whom recently assumed new responsibilities within the organization. I would also like to deeply congratulate all who graded at the Budosai 2012.

I would like to specially congratulate Sensei Tetsuji Nakamura for his major achievement. Without any doubt, he will do a great job preserving the values and traditions that were until now permanently promoted by Sensei Morio Higaonna. I am sure that Sensei Nakamura, given his qualities as martial artist and as a person, will move the organization forward to greater levels in all aspects. I wish to personally express, and in the name of all members of Dojo Goju Do – Chile, our full support to the new management and stress our commitment to assist the organization by all possible means. I wish the best of successes to Sensei Nakamura with the entrusted task of guiding IOGKF.

Finally, I would like to send special regards, recognition and gratitude to Sensei Morio Higaonna, for all he gave in the wake of the creation of IOGKF, turning it into a great organization and now demonstrating humility and wisdom, by restructuring it with the appropriate people, keeping his commitment and full support.

Kind regards,

Jorge Rivera
IOGKF – Chile Representative
