Message from Saiko Shihan Goshi Yamaguchi

Saiko Shihan Goshi Yamauchi
To all I.K.G.A. Members,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the I.K.G.A. members for their continuing support and cooperation to I.K.G.A.

We have been conducting the I.K.G.A. World Championships every four years, and our 6th Championships will take place in India in December 2013.

I hope that your preparations for the forthcoming I.K.G.A. World Championships are proceeding smoothly.

Many of those who cannot attend the 6th Championships have been sending us warm, supporting messages and wishing us the best luck on the event.

It has come to my attention that an email that makes certain claims regarding our World Championships Host Vispy Kapadia Shihan has recently been circulating in India.

Vispy Kapadia Shihan has assured us that these are internal problems to be dealt with within India and that they do not involve I.K.G.A. and should have no effect on hosting the I.K.G.A World Championships.

Having said that, I would like to confirm with you that we will continue with the 6th World Championships as planned.

I would like to ask all of you not to worry and to compete in the spirit of fair play and sportsmanship for our further advancement.

The I.K.G.A. Head Office and the hosting country India would like to assure you that we will conduct the 6th World Championships in India in December as scheduled.

Lastly, I would like to extend my gratitude to all I.K.G.A. members for their understanding and support.

Saiko Shihan Goshi Yamaguchi
I.K.G.A. President
