From the founder of IKKF
I understood, it was necessary to found a new organization which would serve rules and requirements that were composed by our general teacher Sosai Masutatsu Oyama, the founder of Kyokushinkai Karate. Mr. Oyama was a honest, purposeful and kind man. He loved people apart from their nationalism and religions. I was young but I still remember his kind smile, his face and clever eyes. He was going to come to Azerbaijan but the death stopped him. I was trying to know the secrets of Kyokushinkai Karate. I wanted to be like the great teacher Sosai.
At the present time I am Shihan but I am studying hard and I will be studying to the last sigh like our teacher Sosai Masutatsu Oyama. He was the father of fighting art. After the master’s death many Shihans left the organization and founded their organization. From one side it’s fine, because the science about Kyokushinkai Karate widely develops, but from the other side, it’s badly. Some of the formed organizations don’t develop Karate, they develop business. It counteracts the teaching of Sosai Masutatsu Oyama. He dreamt about the real Karate. He found not only for one nation. He found it for people all over the world. Kyokushinkai – is the world Karate. It is clear by interpretation of this word Kyokushinkaikan (the society of the teachers of absolute truth).
Many international organizations became to go to pieces. These are mistakes of these organizations leaders.
But I think, it’s time to found the real Kyokushinkai Karate Organization (IKKF). When I founded the organization I had the following aims:
Develop Kyokushinkai Karate.
Head for the Organization and cooperate with the International Olympic Committee.
Kyokushinkai Karate was founded on the base of budo (military). That’s why IKKF will cooperate with military International Organizations.
IKKF will develop its professional fights.
I as the IKKF president will follow the fulfillment of the organization tasks. I will be very glad if you all support me in this way.
With great respect IKKF president Teyub Azizov.
